I think too many people hate Sather for some of the moves he made earlier (York for Poti, for instance) and no matter what he does afterwards, they'll find fault in it. The bottom line is that Sather handled last year's fire sale as well as could be expected under the circumstances by building a crop of prospects.
If it's conjecture to say that there was a market, it's just as much conjecture to say that there was not.

Why should Sather get the benefit of the doubt? You don't let someone wreck a car and then heap praise on them when they fix the radio.
