It's tough to argue with him, that's for sure. What he's done is amazing. He trades prospects for the guys he needs, but still has a farm system to fill in for all the injuries. If only he won one more championship.

I'm also partial to Epstein--and it's not just the ring, although that's huge. It's what he's doing with the farm system. ;-D
I'm back. Sorta.

Do not boo Johnny.

I personally, Red Sox hatred aside, can't put Epstein ahead of Beane, although I do think Theo is very good.

Maybe some serious biased, but J.P in TO has done everything that he has said he would do since the day he got here. Not to say they are contedors quite yet, but you get the feeling that things are definitly going in the right direction.

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?

Schulholz over Beane since ATL does have a ring under his control.

Beane is better than Theo although Theo is pretty darn good. I'd kick his ass in fantasy baseball tho.

Shuerholz is #1. Beane I like, though he seems misunderstood at times. Theo #3. Twins GM #4. Indians GM #5.

No love for what's going in Milwaukee? That's my vote.
