As I've pointed out, keeping this piece of crap around for a couple months and then giving a two year contract to Robert means that not firing him condemns the Crew to the status quo until 2007. But I just realized something else: We have five draft picks in the first three rounds this year. We got the Metro's second rounder in the Akwari deal and we got Colorado's third in that draft-day swap last year. So Jim Smith, our lame duck GM and Greg "The Village Idiot" as a farewell present to us all, will get to choose the players we'll be stuck with long after they're gone. Have a nice day.
