You can't look at it in the little microscope that you are right now, and simply be close minded to making trades that can improve your team. You have to take risks sometimes.
Agree about taking risk.
But you can't take too many at the same time.
They took a flyer with a no-name Jacoby.
They tried to work through his mental lapses of judgment, including sleeping at the wheels. They didn't let him go until there was a personal safety threat to him.
They gave Holliday plenty of chances, but he didn't help himself with some bone head decisions on the field.
Even though I would have liked for them to be a little more patient, I really can't blame them.
Holliday had more than half a dozen blunders this year.
The risk/reward is really touch and go there.
