lol trade him for less than he's worth? no one will give us equal value.
we have in Gore a young, elite RB who we drafted in the 3rd round. a steal. dealing him for less than his value possible bust draft picks would be moronic. whats the point of drafting successfully if youre just going to turn it around and trade it for more question mark draft picks.
its like Billy Beane syndrome. constantly dealing players for more draft picks before theyve really had a chance to help your team. its just a never ending cycle in Oakland. draft a guy, trade him for draft picks, those picks turn out, trade them for draft picks, those turn out, trade them for draft picks, etc.
all the while, the guys that are turning out never have a chance to gel together and form a winning team. if beane ever assembled a solid team and kept them together for more than 2 years they might have an a WS in the last 15 years.
