MLB Trade Deadline Winners and Losers
Losers: Us – Because the trade deadline was loud and frantic and annoying and it seemed like it would never end.
Winners: Us – Because it ended.
Maybe I’m an awful contratian that sucks the fun out of everything in order to bring the rest of the world down to my own singular, miserable level—or maybe I’m just getting old—but I found yesterday kind of overwhelming. And exhausting! I’ve been there, I’ve done the MLB Trade Rumors thing, constantly refreshing homepages, internet searching for updates and confirmation of sources—the whole song and dance. And I enjoyed myself, for the first few seasons at least. Perhaps it was because this was my first season with an active Twitter account, but holy shit, the information and rumors and gossip and speculation was relentless. It literally never ended. It’s still going on right now, this very instant as I type these words with my hands and fingers.
