Apparently Josh's babysitters have him under the impression that fans make trades.
I can see why he'd have that reaction.
Josh was the feel good story of the year.. then as soon as he was traded, many (not all) fans suddenly decided he was a ticking timebomb that was going to relapse, have a serious injury, etc, etc.
In other words, plenty of fans turned on him when he was traded for a handful of magic beans (Volquez).
Thank you Walt and Bob for going for it in 2012 AND 2013!
