Gimme a break. Objectively the Gomez contract was one of the most idiotic things Sather has done in the past decade. Just because he got lucky and was able to turn a turd into gold doesn't mean the Gomez deal in and of itself was a good deal.
Sting's Gainey was mentally unstable, literally, argument is patently offensive. He had no business ever making it, it's a disgusting claim. And simply absurd. Nothing else to say about it, don't try to justify it.

Sather got 70 and 58 pts out of his two years of Gomez. A lot of you don't realize, he fell off a cliff right after we dealt him. Sather did a good job getting out before it happened. So good that we got McD in it. Give credit where it's due.
