Led to Ballard trade.

There was a conflict with the coach. If there was doubt in his ability, or if Tallon didn't think he was the guy - it would be Pete gone and Ballard still around. And Andy Murray probably would have been on board by now.

Ballard sucked last season. He deserved whatever **** he got. And now he's gone, and Tallon got GREAT value for him.
Doesn't mean he writing's on the wall with DeBoer, and Ballard's cap hit had as much to do with it as anything else. He had a bad year, it happens, he could bounce back and have the kind of year he had the one before. Just because Tallon hasn't brought in his own guy yet doesn't mean he's overly happy with DeBoer.

Future now!
