Cespedes, who just won back to back home run derby's and one of the biggest parts of our offensive, will be heading to Boston. Just saying that puts a bad taste in my mouth. Now I know that Lester is a beast at pitching. He has experiences and wins in both the playoffs and World Series. Gomes is a hometown boy that was with the A's before. Gomes is a good hitter and outfielder, but he does not have the same hitting presence as Cespedes.
Now I am still going to be a A's fan no matter what. The shock of the trade is still with me, but its not like this has not happen before. Being a Oakland Athletics fan, a true Athletics fan, you been around long enough to know this kind of thing happens a lot. Even in the movie Money Ball there is a scene where a guy calls into a radio station saying, "I am tried of the A's being the farm system for the rest of Major League Baseball.".
This is something I have said many times myself, but I will continue to be a fan of my A's. I have heard people on the radio saying that they where not going to renew there season tickets next year or that they where not going to show as much support to the A's now. This tells me that you are a fan that is only rooting for the A's cause they are doing good. Either way I will be supporting my team. Its apart of the game, as much as it sucks seeing certain players leave.
