Whatever Foote is, he’s not naive. His days here are numbered, and the first team that demonstrates a willingness to take on his contract, whether that’s for the entire season or near the trading deadline, likely can get him for any offer than isn’t a complete embarrassment. (And maybe even for one that is.) The chances of Foote returning for 2010-11, even if he doesn’t retire, are minuscule.
No further comments from me are needed. The rest is here.
