Apparently you DID expect him to turn it around in 1 year lol.... because you were OK with him being fired even though neither of the things you listed were his fault.
VC trade = Peddie
Hoffa drafting = McCloskey
If you want to fault Babcock for his drafting skills then you should probably judge him on the FOLLOWING year when he drafted CV (and found Jose and brought him over as a FA).
