      So does John Schuerholz. For three times as long a period of time.

        I voted Jim Hendry. He's been doing wonders for the Cubs. I would have voted for Pat Gillick, but he quit a few years ago. He was awesome for the Mariners. brought in that one guy, what's his name, Ichiro?

          I like Billy Beane, he has created a winning team that was under $60 million in 2004.
          Unlike most other team sports, in which teams usually have an equivalent number of players on the field at any given time, in baseball the hitting team is at a numerical disadvantage, with a maximum of 5 players and 2 base coaches on the field at any time, compared to the fielding team's 9 players. For this reason, leaving the dugout to join a fight is generally considered acceptable in that it results in numerical equivalence on the field, and a fairer fight.

            In my opinion, it has to be Beane. No one else has been that successful with a payroll so relatively small to work with.

              actually, the twins gm has done the same thing. maybe its the division, but i don't think so. i think his name is terry ryan, so that's who i voted for. if i'm wrong... well, then change my vote to the gm of the twins.

                  It is Ryan.

                    Hendry's ability to get other teams to screw themselves is remarkable. We traded (basically) Bobby Hill for Aramis Ramirez. A simply unbelievable move. Partially motivated by payroll of course, but no one else went to make that move. Also trading a minor league pitcher and Alex Gonzalez for Nomar. Ridiculous moves that Hendry makes sometimes.

                      Was Hendry the GM when the Cubs suckered the Dodgers into getting Todd Hundley for Grudzielanek and Karros?

                          hendry is my #2, but yes he has made some GM's look stupid themselves. i am holding a closer against him however, so he cant get my #1 (plus billy beane seems to make the perfect moves every year)

                            I did a completely unhomer pick and picked Chuck Lamar! I mean, he got Scotty Kazmir for Zambrano!! And Hendrickson for Kennedy! And for the most important thing of all: he REFUSES to trade the great young prospects that the Rays have! And there are a ton of them, but he won't give them up for anything less than pure gold! The Cubs wanted Aubrey Huff, and Lamar said "How about Carlos Zambrano and a few minor leaguers?" He's guarding these kids like a mother bear protecting her cubs!
