|Baseball Sports Betting: The Right Way to Request a Trade|
|Tuesday, 14 July 2009 20:07|
Baseball sports betting fans have to love Roy “Doc” Halladay. Not only has he stuck with the Blue Jays way longer than most aces of his caliber ever would, he’s now redefining the proper way to request a trade.
Is he calling a press conference and mouthing off about his needs? Having his agent make demands on his behalf? Taking a leave from the team? Nope. All Roy is doing is making a few honest statements about winning, and doing so only in reaction to rumors that Toronto is shopping him.
Halladay is already a rich enough man and he’s not a money-first guy – all he cares about is winning, and that’s a virtuous trait as far as I’m concerned. He never raised the idea of being traded but, now that the team is thinking about it and now that the team is tanking yet again, he seems to be warming up to the idea of pitching for a winner. Baseball sports betting fans can hardly blame him for that. And he’s openly stated that he only wants to leave if it’s through a deal that really helps the Jays too. He understands the lofty return he could command.
Good on ya, Doc. You revealed your openness to a trade without trying to weasel out of your contract or commitment to the team. You’re simply reacting to what your team reportedly wants to do with you. That’s the way to do it.
