Justice for Trey Mancini. Baltimore trades their heart and soul during surprise .500 season.

For the first time in a long time, the Baltimore Orioles are relevant. Stringing together a surprising season and beating good teams, the dark days of the O's are behind them. Until today, where the organization just sent themselves back and made the most head scratching move by trading away their clubhouse leader and emotional fan connector, Trey Mancini, to baseball's least favorite team.

It's a sad day. It's a bad day...I'm not even a Baltimore fan and I'm upset.

Five years of heartbreak and poor play. The Manny Machado days are behind them. The rebuild is on the tail end. They finally are a .500 team, just a mere three games from a Wild Card spot, and they deal away a fan and team favorite? Are you kidding? Winning in Baltimore mattered to Mancini, and they took that away from not only him, but the fanbase of the team.

Listen, I understand baseball is a business, but is Trey Mancini the biggest needle mover on the team if they are considered sellers? Why even sell at the deadline when you have a strong chance of making the playoffs? There is just a whole lack of thinking on this move in my opinion.

Mancini, is hitting .268/.347/.404 with 16 doubles, 10 homers, 41 RBI and 39 runs in 92 games this season. What makes matter worse is he's heading down to Houston. At least he got one last web-gem at his final at bat in Camden.
