    He's going back to DET at the end of the season IMO. Believe Holland only has one year left as well.

    Something's up.


    I think a lot of what he did is overrated, but he's still made a lot of good moves for that organization. Now, they are on the cusp. Strange time to step aside, voluntarily.

    When are the skeltons coming out of the closet here? Seems like they are getting ahead of something

    wtf? Wow, where did this come from?

    I think most Tampa fans really liked Yz. Build them into a contender team without sacrificing the youth, made a lot of good trades and signings aswell.

    This makes no sense. Got to be something we dont know about here.

    Definitely something in the water here.
    Looking forward to some dirty laundry being aired.

    edit, maybe not, having read the article on The Athletic.
