Soooooo. It's not easy building a baseball team. Things like contract negotiations, dumping players for better players etc. I imagine it can be very difficult if you let your emotions influence your decisions. I figure a good general manager has to put his feelings aside when he's doing his job, and this is probably very hard to do when your team is as kick ass as, oh I don't know, Your Boston Red Sox. There's a thin line, and you have to ignore your person feelings and make good business decisions.
However, there are certain situations where your personal feelings are more important than business decisions. Sometimes you just have to do the right thing, even if its not the best business decision on paper.
Let me put it another way. I don't want to win if I have to win with him. We need Mikey Lowell. Its the only way. A-Rod is a loser. He will be a cancer that rots away at the core of this team.
If it wasn't for the fans, there would be no Red Sox. Its normally not a good idea to let the fans make the decisions. But in this case, you owe it to us. We are the only part of the Red Sox that doesn't change. Sometime you have to do what we want you to do. If A-Rod somehow makes it to the Red Sox, we will never accept him. He knocked the ball out of Bronson Arroyo's hand! Our team is amazing, and he doesn't belong anywhere near it. On the other hand, Mike Lowell is the man. He's an amazing team player. And he's an amazing player period.
P.S. Ask me about my free waterbed. Thanks Sox!
