Re: Anybody Think O'Brien Pulled The Trigger Too Early?
I didn't like the deal when it was made and I don't like it now.
It isn't the players they received in return that I have a problem with. I believe the return was actually pretty darned good for a middle reliever. I just have issues with the timing of the deal. Coming into this year, some kind of stability was needed regardless of team expectations after blowing up the pen last season. Reitsma was the only rock.
If Reitsma was to be moved, it should have been a deadline deal.
