You'd be okay with trading him now? I might be, but for who? What rookie do we have that you'd be comfortable with playing 20+ minutes per night, killing penalties? Who takes that responsibility and performs at Girardi's level? What UFA can we sign for $3MM that can adequately replace him?
This is part of the underrating I'm talking about. It's not as if there's an abundance of players out there at that salary that can replace his production.
Great post. Agree 100%.
