I won't begrudge them letting him leave.
But posters in this thread don't seem to understand how good he is compared to other pitchers in the AL.
I think you're conflating the latter with the former, at least in my read through the thread. Given that nearly half the AL will lose 90+ games, it's probably not the best measuring stick. I'm in the same boat as you; I won't shed any tears if he isn't brought back. If others have reached a level of fatigue with Gibson's inconsistency that they'd rather see change, if for nothing other than the sake of making a change, I get it.
