Burrows (who has significant value on the trade market) could be moved for a piece the roster is missing. Oh no! Now he can't be traded!
So your logic is "what if some other player can fill his role"? Quick, call Gillis before the NTC kicks in NEXT YEAR.
At least you are a consistent one trick pony.
