Former New York Mets shortstop Amed Rosario revealed how he felt when he found out he got traded to the Indians in a deal for Francisco Lindor, and discusses whether or not he feels pressure to replace Lindor in Cleveland.
During a Zoom conference call Thursday with reporters, Rosario danced around the notion that he might feel extra pressure in joining the Indians after being traded for a four-time All-Star and face of the franchise in Lindor. He said the feeling he gets from being involved in that kind of trade is more along the lines of pride. It shows the value the organization has for you and at the same time, gives me more reason to play the game the way I do,” Rosario said.
There are few, if any, fannies to put in seats right now in professional sports. Should that time roll around again this year, depending on the distribution of the coronavirus vaccine, star power matters. On Wednesday night Collin Sexton of the Cavs scored 42 points in a double overtime win against Kyrie Irving, James Harden, Kevin Durant and the Nets.
