Why Are Some Fans So Angry?

155

This is not a demand for Hey Jaysie, or Hey Jay-Z, though either would be sweet. In fact, I think Hoynes is at his relative best here. But just read the questions he selects; you'd think we have a baseball team that is paid in scratch-off tickets and Bazooka Joe. Jean wants to know why it's "so hard" to take on additional payroll, as if it's anything more than Econ 101. Tom wants to know why the Sabathia trade should be viewed with anything other than scorn. Marty wants to know if the Dolans are just "using fans to make money." (Hey Marty: Of course they are! It's called capitalism!) So honestly, why are fans so angry? Do you guys know any fans who talk like this? They seem to be more than just uninformed; they're furious. (And just for laughs, please read the Joe Beimel question. So, so awesome).
