trade of Cliff Lee, one of the games best pitchers, the Cleveland Indians front office has admitted to fans that they stopped caring after the trade of C.C. Sabathia last year.
"Anyone can see that we aren't very good," said GM Mark Shapiro. "So we took the Pittsburgh Pirates approach and traded one of our best players. Again. We'll probably trade Victor Martinez too. We are looking to the future. WAY into the future. I just hope that we have some fans left in 2012 when we are competitive again."
