What in the world are you talking about? We are not talking about how a fast food restaurant treats its minimum wage employees, but a professional sports franchise and a $15M/year athlete that did not negotiate for a no-trade clause. For ****s sake, whether or not the GM informs him that he's part of trade talks has nothing to do with how management treats employees or whether employees are entitled to something beyond a paycheck. Jesus Christ, enough straw men already.

It's not customary in professional sports to let players know they're the subject of trade talks. Exceptions are sometimes made for "special" players but the Sox have no reason to make such an exception for Adam Dunn. **** him sideways. He's done nothing to deserve it.
