Because teams will see the panic coming IF we have a bad start. You never want to be in a position where the other GM can sense you are totally desperate and you are trying to get rid of a guy because his situation is at a dead end. Why do you think we've been constantly robbed in trades for years? Because we put ourselves in horrific situations, either by trading guys at the worst point in time or by not taking care of holes. It's the worst time to make a trade.

It's also rarely a good idea to make a big franchise altering trade during the season, you'll have several teams who won't want to tinker with what they have.
