Out of appreciation for the quality work Travis does, I'll skip the part where he compared Shelley to Lappy and jump to his conclusion:
"I'm not saying we have to love the guy immediately, and I'm certainly not saying that there's no chance of regretting the signing. But I am asking for people to give the guy a chance to show up at camp and put on an orange uniform. After that happens, then we can pass judgment."
I'll still leave the door open for some bizarrely Hartnellian playoff turnaround, but for now, count me in as having passed judgment.
