I grew up with guys like Chipper Jones, Craig Biggio, Todd Helton, all sticking with they're teams for the long haul. That's the way it should be in my book.
What is wrong with this generation of players? Are you guys a fan of hopping ships from one rival to another like these guys do today? Guys leaving their teams for more money.
Examples of guys leaving for rivals:
Josh Hamilton to the Angels from the Rangers
Johnny Damon to the Yankees from the Redsox
CJ Wilson to the Angels from the Rangers
Example of franchise players leaving for better money:
Albert Pujols to the Angels from the Cardinals
It seems like the guys that we once cheered and loved always take the money over loyalty these days.
Do you guys have a problem with this or is it just me? Nothing's stranger then seeing your franchise guy leave town for more money.
