We were in the teeth/butt-clenching "ooooh, hope he can get better!" phase of the bust cycle with Trent, but make no mistake, that's exactly where we were headed. He was running tentative a la William Green in the first half of 2002, he was slow, he was getting very, very little that the defense wasn't giving him, and he often wasn't even getting that.
But not a Herschel comparison at all. We ripped those foo's off for a bust happening in real-time. Like Doo Doo says not a flaming has no value bust, but a never gonna be the player as drafted * in a meh way bust. So if you are trying to win now yah probably keep that. But if you are in rebuild you leverage your assets that aren't future building blocks and get what you can. We got way more than we shoulda.
This was a July baseball-y trade.
* - By this I am not including peeker who told us then and there drafting TRich was a msitake casue he twert that good. Just getting that footnote in to keep it frendly-like.
Not that good, just awake at the time the pick was made. I will say I was a fan of TY Hilton, though. But wee he here he's be shit on rye. Sometimes it's just all about location, location, location.
