How do you tell your girlfriend...

...that Kenny Lofton isn't coming back next year?

Well, here's how you apparently don't do it:

[girlfriend mentions something about Kenny Lofton]
You: Actually, I don't think the Indians are going to re-sign Kenny next year.
Her: What do you mean??
You: Well, they really only traded for Kenny because they needed a good LF.  Their original LF was hurt earlier in the season.
Her: Why can't they keep Kenny instead?
You: They already have the other guy signed to a contract for like $3-4 million.  They'd have to pay Kenny about the same.  We can't afford to keep them both and only play Kenny.
Her: But can't they trade the other guy?
You: Well, his trade value isn't very high right now.  He was hurt most of the season and only batted about .220.
Her: And we're keeping this loser instead of Kenny???

Anyway, if anyone has any tips, let me know.  I expect to have a similar conversation about a dozen more times between now and April.
