12. Fans’ Lost Trust
It’s also a fact that fans have lost trust in their teams since Manfred took over from Bud Selig. In short, he’s enabled owners to take advantage of their rosters and shift the most expensive players in their teams. Needless to say, many fans have very little faith in their owners.
Just look at how the Red Sox got rid of Mookie Betts. Meanwhile, the Cubs are trying to do the same thing with Kris Bryant. It’s a true display of weakness from Manfred and greed from owners. Furthermore, it threatens the lifeblood of baseball as a sport.
