I don't want to see DZ moved (I'd rather see a new coach--not just because of MDZ, but because of the struggles of the entire defense outside of McD, and because I think AV was brought in to do something--contend--that this team is going to be a few years away from doing). But by the same token, if he doesn't want to be here and AV isn't going to go anywhere, MDZ's value will just go lower and lower.
Well said. It's a lose, lose situation. AV doesn't want Del Zotto in the lineup, at least not on the left side--that's pretty clear. Not having Del Zotto in the lineup makes it harder to trade him and reduces his value. Oh well. Every time a new coach comes in, someone gets dumped. I like Del Zotto through and am not sold on John Moore. But, the damage is done.
