Little Kids Cry About Nomar

Front-page news today:

Braeden Zanni ran to his bedroom and cried late Saturday afternoon after he heard the Red Sox had traded his favorite ballplayer. Tyler Beach, another distraught 7-year-old, asked his dad whether Nomar Garciaparra "had done something wrong."

When David DeMatteo broke the news to his two children, Joshua, 5, and Kelsey, 9, they just couldn't grasp why their hero wouldn't be playing at Fenway Park anymore.

Now I don't feel so bad for crying myself to sleep Saturday night.

But seriously, I'm glad he's gone. Everyone needed a fresh start, little kids' emotions be damned.
