Your true polling question needs to be:

Perron and $4.5 to $5 million for O'Reilly
or $4 million to keep Stewart

I choose Stewart in a nanosecond.
It's still wrong.

First, I explicitly said I personally wouldn't pull a Perron for O'Reilly trade. So that right there is challenging me on something I wouldn't do and have said I wouldn't do.

Second, I don't understand any assumption that says a rebounded, rights-owned Stewart leaves after this season for zero return.
