What is a reasonable alternative explanation. He told him he was traded but not to which team?

Agreed 100 percent. Gainey was above board and transparent in his dealings. His problems began and ended with his assessment of pro players, which he relied heavily on the egomaniac for. Ironic.

I half agree with you.

Telling Gill he was traded - good.
Not initially telling Gill his destination - bad.

Keep in mind also that in that hour of darkness someone could have easily informed Gill of his new destination, and that's even worse.
