    I think this calls for a Bay Area radio host to call out the commissioner and then throw a hissy fit!

    Turns out my rant isn’t done. The Astros did exactly this when Biggio and Bagwell retired. They’re fans had to listen to how a 5-6 second basemen was the organizations’ savior and how picking the college shortstop wasn’t a value pick over the high school kids.

    And what about the Royals, who decided to have one more go and now haven’t even really attempted to go after Hosmer, Moustakas, Cain and Escobar? They aren’t even going to get anything in return for those players except maybe a couple low first and second round picks.

    The Braves are in full rebuild mode. Should that ownership be investigated?

    Sorry, that’s just ridiculous.

    dunno what all that was about but are you saying you would or would not trade your top prospect and 3 others for Longoria? I don't care either way as I'm not all that interested in MLB and may not realise how great an aging Longoria is.

    And let’s talk about ******* Marlins Man. Maybe buy some tickets in the actual stadium where the Marlins are instead of jet-setting around the country to be seen behind home plate at everyone else’s games.

    Sorry, I’m on a Marlins whiny fan rant.

    The Rays probably won that trade, I don’t disagree.

    Royals fans should be pissed too.

    You raise an interesting point though - certainly teams should be allowed to rebuild if they think that's in their best interest... But I do feel uniquely bad for Florida as this is the 2nd time they've had their entire team basically decimated - how are you supposed to support the team in 2017. If you were a season ticket holder, how could you justify paying for those tickets?

    Derek Jeter (for those who may not know, he’s part of the Marlins’ new ownership group) had a Q&A with fans this week. Marlins Man asked him “do you know who I am?” Yeah, he’s kind of full of himself.

    They have one of the lowest season ticket holder bases in the league. They weren’t paying for it to begin with.

    This is just how the sport works. Small market teams lose big name players to trade and free agency. It’s just how it works. When Manfred came at him with the fact that the bottom teams several years ago are at the top now, it basically negates anything he’s whining about.

    I’m not pissed. Those guys won a World Series for my team. Now the Royals can’t afford them. So be it.

    Could be worse. You could hold on to talent until it's trade value disappears...pay big money for mediocre talent instead...only keep players you like...and still not seriously contend for a championship. Then when your farm system is dead, MLB talent is washed up or injured, tell the fan base you aren't rebuilding...just "retooling". And when you do get offered a valuable trade, you nix it because the incoming player jammed his thumb in high school.

    Quite honestly...I have no sympathy for other organizations. Even if they are trending downward, at least they have a direction.

    see also, the Detroit Tigers - though they are at least open about rebuilding now

    Feel bad for Pirates fans - the McCutchen era should have produced more. He still has plenty of good Coors ABs left in him I'm sure.
