I've been silent all winter, and therefore haven't weighed in on this fiasco in general, so very quickly I'll put this out there:
I like Brian Roberts, I like the idea of him being on the team, I don't mind giving up something to get him, I don't like giving up everything in the link above.
I'll leave it at that for now, because anything else is a rant based on events that have yet to transpire, and I'd rather save the bulk of my praise/vitriol for whatever comes to pass. Or doesn't come to pass. Or passes in the night. Like ships. Or strangers on a train. Like sands through the hourglass.
This needs to happen soon, or unequivocally go away, for clearly, all else equals madness.
