There are a lot of owners who, from a business standpoint, would push for that trade. He will bring people to the seats, slump or not. Secondly, I have no doubt that there are GMs and coaches who believe they can bring out the old OV with the right system and right complementary pieces. We could get a hell of a lot in return for OV.

That said, as lousy as he has been, I want to give Oates more time. Teams have started badly and gone on to do well, and teams have started on fire while struggling the rest of the way (we all know a team like that).
