I absolutely agree with this. If we aren't talking about value right now, then I agree with all of this.
I brought back the comparison because the conversation shifted back to Lu being a cap dump. Despite that one of the reasons for moving him is the cap, we don't have an urgent need to move him. He is an elite player with a below market cap hit and at least, at least, a few years of elite play left before the beginning of a decline.
Well putting value aside, THANK YOU!
