I understand it's a business, but that doesn't make his actions any better.
Huge hometown discounts, still being paid millions of dollars a year. Like it or not, when you get paid obscene amounts of money, it's somewhat understood that you're subject to drastic change such as this. It's all part of the compensation.
I think trading them before their clauses kicked in was rough, but come on. It's not like they were traded to Baghdad or Mars. Columbus and LA are two very nice cities.
