Even though he was traded from the Oakland Athletics to a 2014 non-contender in the Boston Red Sox on July 31, former A's slugger Yoenis Cespedes has a pretty great attitude on the situation. In an extended piece on MLB.com, Cespedes reflects on his time in Oakland like a true pro. He closed with this parting shot:

"I don't hold any hard feelings or resentment toward them," Cespedes said. "Apart from the game being fun, it's also a business, and I understand that side of it, so I don't harbor any negative feelings toward them. On the contrary, I wish them nothing but the best. I hope that they keep fighting, and I hope they win the World Series."

Pure class, and a similar attitude is reflected throughout the article. Good for Cespedes for being such a professional when many would harbor ill will about being traded from what was the best team in baseball at the time.
