First of all, I'm almost positive it won't sacrifice any short term success in reality, because Nyquist and Tatar are equally good or better than Eaves and Miller.

And secondly, this part is just as much on Holland/Ownership as it is on Babcock, even if I wasn't being clear. Detroit doesn't accept losing, Babcock doesn't accept losing. Short term or long term. I'm sure Kenny and Babs have daily roster discussions, so they're both to blame.

That's what I'm saying. That's our problem.
