As far as I can tell, no one (at least no one I can remember) is advocating actually, truly tanking. TANKING would be sitting Gabby "for precautionary reasons"; tanking would be deciding that "Hank needs to rest every other day due to the Olympic strain"; tanking would be sending MDZ back to his junior team "to experience their playoff run".
PARTS LIKE PROSPAL AT THE DEADLINE.
That term is thrown around way too often around here.
Prospal is a huge asset right now. Hes worth just as much or more as a trading asset for the future as he is to get this team to the playoffs. Sure, you wont get a bonafide star out of it, but you should get something of substance back that you can grow, trade for a higher draft pick, or use in a trade.
And after all of that - you CAN REACQUIRE HIM IN THE SUMMER and probably for a good price again too.
Our luck is, Slats finally decides to trade him for a 4th rounder or something nominal and totally blows his value.
