With the team winning and playing well most of the year how can you just trade guys because they are too small or old. They were helping get the winning tradition back in the dressing room. I agree nothing would make happier than MB trading DD and Gio and Bullion but it is one step at a time. MB has had a year to assess the locker room and roster and what he has in the minors and now has a chance this off-season to address those issues.
There are some nice UFA's for him to look at ,then maybe a trade plus the draft to reshape this organization but anyone that is not happy with what he has done so far is well....

What did Howson do in CBJ? Tambellini in EDM? Gillis in VAN?? These are some recent GMs that never turned a roster over and won in their first years
Not sure this is a comparison you want to make

All in all MB had a plan... He wanted to assess what he had... He failed to adjust... This is what I am angry about.
