The best GM's in the league are the ones that work with what they are given, and flounder nothing. J.P. was basically told for the first 4 years he was here, deal with no payroll, and oh, we want a contendor. He now has some more money to work with, and he is still focused on the prospects. Patience, and I can appriciate that.
Just giving the props I think are deserving.
I actually was going to mention his name but Toronto hasn't had enough success yet for me to stick him up there with names like Schurholtz, Beane, Jocketty, etc.
How long has he been the GM? Since '03?
