I'm a little nervous that the organization has done a bunch of things it seems EVERY fan wanted. Trade Roy, keep Grigorenko up, fire Lindy. It can be argued that none of those things were in the best interest of the team (or they may prove to be good decisions).
On the Roy trade in particular, he did a lot of unnoticeable things well and a lot of noticeable things poorly and that ultimately spelled his demise for the fans. I didn't hate trading him if we could replace his offensive skill, or compensate for the loss with different offensive skills and while I like Steve Ott, he achieves neither. With Grigorenko, Hodgson, Girgensons, and Ennis I think I would probably still do the trade and commit to rebuilding.
