It makes a huge difference to the GM if the pitchforks are out for a player or if the fans are still supporting them.

Everyone knows that the fans here are sick of "winning" Charlie Sheen style and they want some changes, and Gagner has a lot of trade value and a mob of angry detractors.

Right now it makes no difference that team was terrible before he got back from injury, or that he was playing with a full cage on and the usual disadvantages of coming off an injury, all that matters is that the bloom is off the rose and very few fans here can stand a developmental curve that's longer than 3 years unless the player in question has a wicked toe-drag.
