But hey i'm sure this isn't the first promising young player your club has destroyed so i'm sure you are used to that game at this point...
It's a learning experience for Stralman. He himself recognized that he is fighting for a spot. And that he wasn't all that good in preseason. Ron Wilson should help Stralman mold his d-game. He is in a right environment here. I wouldn't worry about this.
