I don't understand how Chuck LaMar isn't at the top of everyone's list. He has done a better job lately but a track record like his doesn't come easy.

Other notables:
Wade in Philly
Cashman/Steinbrenner in NY
O'brien in Cincy
Bowden in Washington

Chuck LaMar. Lots of losing seasons, spent alot on Piniella.
Allan Baird KC
Bill Bavasi Seattle
Ed Wade, lots of losins, and a insane policy throughout organization of no pitch counts. That means they have no problem running a 19 year old class A sp out for 130 pitches.
Jim Bowden

Deposdesta took LA to playoffs last year. Had Bradley/Drew/Gagne not been hurt, LA would be on SD. It's not his fault Beltre didn't sign, LA put out a good offer.

Good God! It's Allard, it's not even close! The Royals are horrible top to bottom.
sigh.

Ed Wade is gone, maybe even before the end of the year.

Jim Hendry nomination here. Let the Cubs apologists attack, but I don't know what the hell they're doing in Chicago.

You could also nominate Ken Williams, but clearly Ozzie is running the show there now.

He was probably just amazed at the garbage coming out of 80% of the other GM's mouths

1. Allard - KC is a COMPLETE mess
2. Bowden - for work with both Reds and Nats
3. Chuck LaMar (TB, right?) - only for hiring Lou, that's reprehensible enough
4. Cashman - if he can't grow the balls to tell the Boss how it is and actually be a GM, he might deserve to top this list

As for Hendry, he's a bit of a puzzle to judge because he's really pulled off some great trades but made a horrible choice of manager in Dusty Baker. All Dusty did was protect his players so much that they became spineless and crumbled under the pressure of a pennant race blaming everyone but themselves while ruining a great talent in Corey Patterson. I guess I need to put Hendry on the list because of Dusty if Chuck LaMar makes it for Pinella.
