    Re: Reds named 'Organization of the Year' by Baseball America

    I'm sorry, but I don't think WJ should be penalized or "marked down" because he "inherited" what he has. All GMs do this. It doesn't take much to screw up a good program, but he also brought his competence and track record to Cincinnati. It isn't like he was the new Kris Kringle taking over the Santa Claus empire. Don't forget we live in the town where a certain decision maker inherited a franchise that was in decent shape and what happened to that franchise when he took the reins.

    I guess the overabundance of information has raised expectations to sexy moves to say a GM is active and should "get credit." Begging the question.

    Well, the Marlins have been very active. The Astros have been releasing, trading, signing left and right. Lots of activity there, they must be well run organizations.

    I guess lots of activity gives more fodder for internet pundits to have information to deadpan.
