It's a numbers game. There have been much, much better players the last couple of years (and each year) than Strait.
I think people are getting more emotionally attached with this than they should.
Maybe the fact that Lovejoy is still on the team has something to do with that.
Like I said, I wouldn't be happy if Bortuzzo is lost for nothing, but Stait not so much.
Seriously, if it was just a question of "no room" I'd be fine with this move.
Let me be clear. Lovejoy sucks. He was always expected to suck. And he will always suck.
Just irritating, is all.
