Not if you want to get rid of a guy. If they wanted to keep Nodl, they would have sent down a different guy.

If that is the case, which I haven't read anywhere, I still don't see it as a problem. We have a number of guys at roughly the same contract amount who are younger and of equal or the same skill. Why not get rid of a redundant player to potentially make room for another? Where is the problem with that?

Well you threw down a few negatives even though some were more about not knowing rules and regulations compared to the actual crime committed (example Hyka). In that case, you can not say that Homer knew what he was doing, because honestly, he flat out said he messed up.

I would like to hear a bunch of positives please. Now remember, they CLEARLY outweight the negatives. Richards and Carter trade are not considered positives for right now its still to early to decide.
You really need a list?

Coburn trade
Timonen and Hartnell trade
Betts signing
Bob signing
Read signing
Lupul and Smith trade
Leino trade

I could go on here, and keep in mind these are all moves that have had pretty serious impacts on the team both individually and collectively, unlike the "bad" moves that even collectively have had very little effect. How about I leave it at that and you show me some negatives?
