I’m guessing this kid hates the trade deadline, too. If he reacts like this when his favorite player hands him a baseball, imagine how he’d react to hearing the player was traded.
Fukudome to the Indians. Hopefully there aren’t any little Cubs fans who love Fukudome as much as this kid loves Josh Beckett.
Fukudome wasn’t the answer for the Cubs. Helped us capture a division crown in ’08 and that was about it. A hard worker and a class act but statistically, he didn’t quite live up to the sales pitch. I wish you well in Cleveland, Fukudome. Another former Cub I’ll keep an eye in his post-Cubs career.
Go Cubs Go!
