Discerning that he makes the same mistake twice in a row regarding the head coach of our team.
RE: The Leddy Trade: AT THE TIME, Leddy's ceiling was was what Barker had already done just the season before. Hindsight is always 20/20, and Leddy is better now, but that doesn't mean Fletcher should burn at the stake for it. You'd be singing praise if it would have worked in our favor. You don't win every trade, and you don't make great trades without taking on some risk.
