Over at Athletics Nation.
Those guys are pretty hard on Towers, eh? I can't really say I disagree with their analysis - Towers clearly bungled this one from the get-go, and in light of all that has happened with Trevor Hoffman's departure, it couldn't have come at a worse time. The SD front office is looking like a real collection of assholes these days.
His point about the potentially damaging effects of no-trade clauses is a point worth considering as well. Personally, I love that John Schuerholz rarely gave players NTC, and I'm hoping that Wren learned this well. Last thing we need is dead weight we can't get rid of - we're just getting out from under Mike Hampton!
