in the end, its a hard choice, do we trust them or do we trust you?

I'm not doubting that Gomez was a nice bonus for Gio... but you also agree that "Money played a big part"... so, what's the debate? And we're not talking about an extra million over 5 years.. we're talking about an extra 10 Mil maybe.

Do you also think if Gomez wasn't here Gio wouldn't have signed here?

If Gomez gets traded, I think Gio would be more concerned about how the team faired in the deal vs losing his supposed main reason for signing here.

This is a business and he made the best decision for his family... NJ was not ready to give him 5 mil let alone resign him at 4 mil again, let alone for 5 years...
