At the time of the trade I thought it was a great deal for us. Now, a month in, its looking even better. Oakland is still awful and dysfunctional with little if any long term plan for the franchises future. It looks like we'll be getting a player in the 3-8 range, in what is quite possibly a rookie slotted salary structure. Seymour was awesome for us and I'm grateful for all he did for the team. But there was no way we were going to resign him for 2010. ZERO CHANCE What I like about BB is he's always balancing the long term health of the franchise with what going on the field right now. Can anyone really say that we are missing Seymour right now? I'm pretty happy with what I've seen out of the D so far and the youth movement is paying off. A excellent trade in my books.
