Have any of you ever seen Gettleman so shaken up during an interview with the media?
Everything about him seemed to be off. I know he generally won't even talk with the media during the regular season, regardless of the circumstances. This is a man who has does everything in his power to clear up our cap mess and turn us into a serious contender within two seasons. This is a man who didn't hesitate to cut the best player in franchise history. This is a man with a ball sack larger than Montana. I have absolutely no idea how to react to the way he handled this conference.
This is our GM. All players and coaches are denying that this situation is a distraction. That is fine and dandy, but if it is distracting our GM it is a huge issue. D.G.'s opinion of potential acquisitions were held in high regard to the Giants organization, but his team scouting game plans were held in equal (or higher) regard. He is (arguably) the most important man behind the team that is fielded, we need him at full focus and capacity to win games this year and moving forward.
Without a doubt, the man is facing some form of difficult dilemma with this situation. I just hope he does what he always has and manages to find the best method to get past it.
P.S. I think DG smokes a lot during stressful times.
