I don't blame him either; he was overpaid and we needed to trade him, but the amount of hate he got for that contract constantly overshadowed how good of a player he was.

On the other hand, Sharp is a fan, team, and front office favorite. I remember Bowman making a point of saying publicly in Summer 2010 that Sharp was not even close to being on the block. Say what you will about Bowman, but the few times when he says something to the media, he tends to stick to it.
