Dont know how to respond.
Let me say this, I think Lappy brings ALOT to the table. If Lappy wasnt here, would Carcillo be tamed? Most of Carcillo's actions were controlled because of Lappy and Betts.
I think signing a 4th pairing guy and keeping a top 9 guys could have worked out. There were other choices Homer made that prohibted not signing Knuble, one of them was not signing Lappy.
Remember, he was trying to carve out some salary space... so Lappy basically replaced Knuble's roster spot at a cheaper salary. I don't think you end up with both...that's the real point.
Sure, Lappy has turned out great, but the reality is that we should have bumped Jones and kept Knuble and that was a big part of what was going on with how Lappy ended up here.
