The smarter thing would've been to allow some stupid GM to overpay for a guy like Edler in a trade. Now we're just making our roster worse, and drifting closer and closer towards Mediocristan. I don't get it.
Keeping Edler and buying out Ballard is making our roster worse? Am I missing something here? We can't afford to keep Ballard, and for what he brings he's worth only around 2M.
