Baseball players are people, too

Upon learning that the Mets signed Moises Alou to effectively replace Cliff Floyd in left field at Shea, David Wright described the news as 'bittersweet'. Anyone who has followed the Mets over the past couple of seasons knows that Wright and Floyd were very close friends and, though the writing had been on the wall since the season ended, both players took Floyd's likely departure the way any of us would take our best friend moving away. One of my best friends moved from NYC to a suburb of Seattle last February and, though we keep in touch as much as possible, it's still pretty crappy.
