Top Player Tweets of the Week: Trade Deadline Edition
This week’s top player tweets focus on the comings and goings of Trade Deadline Day 2014.
Trade Deadline Day is a complicated event for a sports fan. With it, comes the possibility of new talent for a team, but also the chance that your favourite player will be lost to another. For the players, the day is an anxiety-inducing roller-coaster that may immediately change their lives.
This week, the players took to Twitter to share their excitement, well-wishes, and thanks to their former and future teams, teammates, and fans, and shared snapshots of their travels as they moved from one city to the next. These are the top player tweets of the week:
