Yep, good post. It's certainly possible the Penguin were wrong and Strait becomes and every day top 4 guy. More possible he becomes less than that based on what's transpired, though I still stay they could've kept him and cut Lovejoy. You already know what Lovejoy is for sure, not the case with Strait.
