Bucks Nation doesn't like Magliore deal


The Magliore for Steve Blake trade looks like a done deal. And Bucks Nation doesn't like it. If I'm hearing and reading things right, this is going to be about as popular as the incomprehensible Carlos Lee-for-two-stiffs trade the Brewers just got conned into.

As for me, I'm not overjoyed by this move, but I'm not outraged either. Magliore was a high maintenance, low production player. He was an offensive blackhole and a defensive matador. His shooting was so poor it was as if he had his eyes covered. Oh wait, he did cover his eyes when he shot! Wasn't that a cool stunt? What a chump.

To me this trade is like selling a used Saab. On the one hand you're glad to get rid of it for whatever someone will pay because the car never performed well and you knew you couldn't afford the future cost of maintenance anyway. On the other hand in the back of your mind you can't help thinking there are a lot of suckers out there who overvalue Saabs and maybe you didn't find the biggest sucker when you sold it.

OK. Picked a name instead of "anonymous" as I will probably post to this blog often ( being one of the only Bucks fans in Portland).

That being said, only Blake will make a contribution next year. I doubt Skinner will get even Gaines like minutes unless Joe Smith and CV are both injured. And just waive Ha, he's useless.
