Why do teams support these players decisions by letting them out? They signed the deal, live with it.
I understand that the Yanks would rather get rid of a cancer, but all these athletes sign huge deals to whatever team is willing to give them an extra penny. They put up with the city for a year then demand they get traded.
Why even go through the FA process? Just go to the team that you want to play for and say, "I would like to play for you, lets work out a deal that works for both of us".
Isntead they jerk-around these teams, get their cash and bail.
All pro sports leagues should adopt a rule that states, if a player "feels unhappy in a particular town or with a particular team" and wants out, they can be let out, but that players contract becomes void.
You have no frame of reference, Donny. You're like a child who walks into the middle of a movie...
