If Levski were to bring me on to his staff, I'd suggest the players wear all cotton uniforms!

OK - back on topic. I still dont understand why we havent hired a permanent GM. Why they are letting a interim guy make all of these decisions, i have no idea.

Or they're making the decisions themselves and putting Mr. DiPoto in a very difficult position.

The only decision they're making right now is to save money. They're certainly not making the team better.

It actually makes good sense. The team wants to hold a firesale. Talent isn't the concern, the owners only care about payroll savings. It would be fucked up to ask a new guy to start a firesale. Those trades, although ordered by the FO are going to be tied to his record as a GM. This way, they get to shed payroll and hire a new GM to run the team with a fresh slate. Everybody wins (except Dipoto and the fans).
