Baseball’s Silly Season

Ah, trade deadline week. One of the more fun parts of the calendar when you’re a fan. But it’s also one of the times of greatest idiocy when it comes to fans- during which every fan should thank their lucky stars that their team isn’t run by talk radio callers.
The trade deadline really brings out the worst of fans, especially in the areas of ignorance and short-sightedness. Yes, of course we should trade every prospect for any veteran I’ve heard of. Of course my team should offer the three worst players on the roster as a package for some other team’s superstar. And how dare our general manager not do everything I just suggested!
I love the deadline, but I’ll be glad when it’s over.
