I'm leaving for the day here in a minute so I don't have time to check but didn't Gillick leave those teams in shambles?Mookie4ever wrote:Pogotheostrich wrote:John Schuerholz is the only one IMO.
Are you forgetting about Pat Gillick?
As GM of the Jays 1984 to 1994 he won 5 division titles and 2 WS.
GM of the Orioles 1995 to 1997 and got them to playoffs in 1996 and 1997.
Then went to the Mariners where they had a record of 393-255 under him (the best in baseball during that span).
Gillick won more WS than Schuerholz and was successful with 3 different teams. At least equal to, if not better than, Schuerholz.

After 97 he leaves the Orioles and they average 77 wins in the next 3 years. Seattle collapsed last year. Seems like he knows when to leave. I'll take continued success over that.
