-every current GM was an unexperienced once in his carrer, so what???
-he is york's "yes man"??? where did u get that?
-i could also say that the whole team is a part of this mess...would you cut all of our players???
-for example??? by the way, we are talking about humans, not machines...it's usual that humans have some relationships...like it's usual that certain GMs bring in "their" guys
-link? my counter-argument, just for example:
"In fact, late last year Baalke was on a short list of candidates under consideration for the GM opening in Seattle." very impressive for a guy who has never been a GM yet...
