Trust me, I'm on the same side as you.

Gomez's contract is putrid, I don't think anyone can argue that. To trade him would simply be a move of ditching his contract and not a knock at the player he is. He's good during the season, a solid playmaker and in the playoffs he's an absolute warrior. But unfortunately, his unbelievably ridiculous contract puts on these beer goggles on fans of the team and they become drunk with rage and forget completely about the contributions.
