I'm not over the moon with the current roster. I still detest certain weaknesses in Gagner's game...but...the people pointing out its NOT so simple as just a matter of running him out of town & replacing him with a better solution right away...make a realisitc point on Gagners' behalf.
I too don't think this is the best roster, but I don't think the answer is to create a hole without and soft of backup plan.
Sign the kid and move him if and when the right time comes up.
