I'm so used to Donnie and everything just kind of coming out of no where, that it strikes me odd that the Detroit GM is practically announcing a trade a week in advance.

My question is, does this strike you as an intelligent thing?

I would think whomever he's trading with would be annoyed/pissed if he's blabbing about it in advance.

Am I missing something here?

I guess I don't know why he's "announcing" it.
