  1. Moore is gaining some respect as people start to realize what that farm system is going to produce over the next few years.

    What about Agent Ned, still working for the Giants?

  2. Yeah, I know he is…I’m just not willing to jump on board the Dayton Isn’t So Bad bandwagon yet. Toning down the snark is okay and he deserves some benefit of the doubt, but he also still deserves some grief.

    Colletti’s a good option…definitely an odd character. I don’t know if he has the same inane track record, though.

  3. This is so silly. Can we stop with the Dayton Moore stuff already? You’re beating a dead horse.

  4. If we stop making fun if Dayton Moore, the terrorists win.

  5. As I said at the bottom of the post, I feel so too. BUT, we need someone to be snarky about. Do you have any alternatives to suggest?

  6. Part of the issue with “Snakeskin Boots” Colletti was that they ran DePodesta out of town. It didn’t help the way Plaschke drooled over him, either.

  7. Give it a few years and it’ll be Amaro

  8. This is just speculation, but isn’t it possible that some, if not all, of the goofy moves Moore has made were really driven by ownership? Moore’s predecessor Allard Baird made some goofy moves too – yet he has gone on to prove himself a sharp talent evaluator with the Red Sox. Just as Moore has proven his ability to build an outstanding farm system. Doesn’t it seem likely both GM’s, in some cases at least, were forced by ownership to make the dopey transactions?

    When Moore keeps repeating his “Trust the process” mantra, perhaps he’s really directing it at David Glass.

  9. What they HOPE it’s going to produce… as evidenced by the last couple historically good farm systems, it’s never a guarantee that legit big league TEAM success is a given when you have a dominant farm system.

  10. Tony Reagins – see Vernon Wells

  11. Amaro would have been my sleeper pick for Next-GM-Everyone-Laughs-At.

  12. I could so see this. I’ve been laughing at him for a few years now. Unfortunately, the Phillies have still been good so it makes the snark less effective.

  13. There’s always Ed Wade and The Quest to Acquire Middle Relievers.

  14. Not only Vernon Wells, but Vernon Wells for more money per year than they were squabbling over with Crawford…

  15. Andy MacFail isn’t exactly blowing my mind.

    Comment by Zzzzzzzzzzz — March 3, 2011 @ 2:30 pm

  16. No mention of Brian Sabean, either. World Series ring or no, I wouldn’t want him helming my team.

    Tony Reagins has got to be the up-and-comer in this category. What a maniac.

  17. BTW, disagree on MacPhail – he’s got the incredibly awesome Erik Bedard trade to his credit, and I think he might yet be vindicated in his moves this offseason. Certainly he’s nowhere near the level of these other jokers.

    Comment by GVeers — March 3, 2011 @ 2:47 pm

  18. Let’s see, in 13 years as GM of the Giants, Brian Sabean has won a WS, 2 NL Pennant, 4 NL West championships, 2 Wild Cards, lost a WC playoff, eliminated on the last day of the season twice. You may not want Brian Sabean as the GM of your team, but that’s OK, I’ll be glad to have him stay with the Giants.

    BTW, prior to Sabean taking over, the Giants had experienced 5 of 6 losing seasons including 4 seasons with Barry Bonds on the team.

  19. Sure, but can you make fun of Colletti better than FJM did? Can anyone?

    Comment by John R. — March 3, 2011 @ 10:05 pm

  20. I’d pick Kenny Williams.

    Comment by John R. — March 3, 2011 @ 10:12 pm

  21. If Kenny Williams was 20 years old today, he’d become a fantasy expert rather than a GM. Guy just loves to trade.

    Comment by Brad Johnson — March 4, 2011 @ 9:53 am

  22. I’ve always thought that the missing Dayton Moore snark simply reappeared as #6org meme.
