Nonsense. George had his hand in RJ, Sheff, Matsui, Giambi, Boone, and Wells deals/signings.
If you really think that George was pulling the strings telling Cashman to go get him Weaver, Vazquez, Wright, Pavano, Hammond, Witasik, RonDL, Womack, Brown, Miceli, Heredia, G, White, etc you are just using George as a punching bag. There is no glitz of glamor in signing Wright. Or in getting Weaver or any of these stiffs. These are the deals that absolutely have killed us in the past 3 or 4 years. And they are largely Cashman blunders.
George's move have been a mixed bag. Sheff, Matsui and Wells have/did work out. The Giambi move was absoolutely awful. RJ is TBD. Even the Boone deal led to Arod ultimately and Claussen is hardly anything to get excited about in the first place.
