While I understand the reasoning behind what's being said about the showcase for a trade thing, realistically what is the return for any of the names mentioned? I'm guessing a fringe prospect, maybe a couple of em at best. No one is giving up anything of value for those guys.
Seems to me they are screwing with the development of a possible cornerstone player, to acquire no shot/long shot likely meaningless assets.
Regardless of how its framed, yet again, this organization is simply proving it's incompetence when it comes to player development.
