I really do hate trade time. I’m so sentimental with my team. I hate to say goodbye.
The trade deadline has claimed it’s first victim. Kosuke Fukudome has gone to the Indians. I wish him well and I hope his new team treats him well (I’ll beat them up if they don’t) and I hope he gets a good run into the postseason with them. I’m glad I got to watch him play right field at the game I went to last September. I liked his interactions with Byrd.
The group hugs in the outfield just won’t be the same without him.
Farewell, Kosuke. I’ll miss you.
