Agreed, I never once defended the contracts. I am arguing that Abby's didnt "mortgage our future". Not hating Holland/not crapping all over him is not the same thing as defending him. Some people just have so much hate for him that they are blinded and spin everything. When people do that, I will call them out on their BS. At the same time, when Holland does something stupid, I will call it like I see it. For example, the Helm and Nielsen contracts were bad contracts, no doubt mistakes by Holland. Trading Riley Sheahan for a 3rd, not a bad move because he was going nowhere and was a waste of roster space.
