After a ton of speculation and talk, Logan Morrison was traded to the Seattle Mariners yesterday for reliever Carter Capps. With speculation already running rampant about a potential trade, Morrison took out time to write a column, for CBS.com, on what it’s like to be traded:
The other side of me — the emotional side — is going crazy! I have been a Marlin since they signed me in 2006. I’ve been going to the same back fields in Jupiter, Fla., since I was 18 years old! The people who’ve helped me become a man, both on and off the field, are employed mostly by the Marlins. I hope those people know who they are because otherwise this thank you will fall on deaf ears. I am forever in your debt!
Morrison mentions the relationships he has built with numerous Marlins players and how his relationship with the front office, including owner Jeffery Loria, wasn’t as bad as the media had made it out to be.
Overall, it’s a great read for fans that will miss LoMo and what he provided for the Marlins.
