Understatement: St. Louis Cardinals fans have not taken the news well that Jason Heyward has left for Chicago.

After the report that the outfielder signed an eight-year, $184 million deal with the Cubs, according to Fox Sports' Ken Rosenthal, some fans took a page out of Cleveland's book and opted to give J-Hey a warm, crackling farewell a la LeBron James—burning his jersey, of course.

Considering the Cardinals lost pitcher John Lackey to Chi-Town as well, it's not surprising to see at least one fan become unhinged. Division rivalries make people do crazy things.
