We have to get something for him, how does a dump with nothing in return help the rebuild?
Plus it would make Hahn look foolish. Taking offers before the deadline, saying they're not good enough, and he won't give a player away, then dump him for nothing? No way.
Freeing up that salary is hugely important to a rebuild. Salary flexibility helps with so many facets of building, from signing FA to signing latin american prospects, etc. If you can't trade him. Let him go and feel the sweet gains of salary dump!
