We were 0-2 when we traded for Alberts. His play has been fine, but when you bench his best partner, it kind of takes off a bit from his play, especially having to cover for Jones' mistakes. It's not bringing in Alberts, it's how it was went about.
EDIT: Also I would have been totally happy not trading the 1st and picking Markstrom, even though we had no idea Homer would have chosen Markstrom. He took a gamble and lost with Eminger. Nothing we could have done.
Actually, there was something we could have done. Taken our draft pick and wait until July 1. There was a good chance Eminger wasn't getting qualified, and if we wanted him bad enough, I'm sure he would have signed an offer sheet.
