But he did a great job this year; in fact, I think this was his best job as a GM. Seems like every move he made worked, so the credit for the A's winning this year certainly is due to him and to Bob Melvin as well, who I think is a fantastic manager.
was that supposed to say "nothing more"?
Idk man. The guy is limited to a 70 mill payroll every year and can't resign the stars he gets. Id say his job is defnitely tougher than any others in the MLB. Its hard to be competetive when you have teams with a 150 million dollar payrol and you're limitied to 70 mill
