Theo On Bronson, And The Trade
This is from the Globe Blog. And not a direct quote, but a summation....."I’ve seen it repeated about a ‘gentlemen’s agreement,’ ... I talked to Jed Hoyer about the contract. The topic came up, but we said we cannot guarantee you’ll not be traded. There was nothing hot. No imminent trade talks. But certainly things change over months. There was no gentleman’s agreement. No handshake. Obviously he wanted to stay in Boston. It’s tough to do to someone who’s been a loyal soldier, enjoys being in Boston. But have to do what’s best for the organization."
*** Peter here. Key words. "What's best for the organization." This was not easy for Theo to do, and we should not make him out to be the villian he is not. A tough move for him. For us. YES.
