Think how much more Vinik would have had to pay for Tampa if they'd managed to trade Vinnie away first.
I agree. I like Vinny but he is a 10M dollar drain on your bottom line and giving you only about 5M in return. Ifhe had kept up his 100pt production it wouldn't be so bad but 10M for 60-70pts...ouch.
