    Unhappy Velez Shipped to Brooklyn

    It didn't take long for the new franchise in Hartford to make some waves. In a surprise move, the Harriers today traded slugger Gustavo Vélez to Brooklyn for a first-round pick in this year's draft.

    Fan reaction was mixed, but those who opposed the deal were most vocal. "These clowns don't know what they are doing," said one fan. "How do you let go of someone with that hitting talent? What a joke."

    According to a source close to the Hartford front office, the owners are looking to build a certain type of team, and Velez didn't fit the mold. The source said that the team was in desperate need of young talent with certain skills. In addition, it was clear that Valez wasn't happy with his situation and wanted to get out of Hartford.

    Time will tell if this was a good move for the Harriers. This will be a something to watch.
