Personally, I really like Jon Daniels and Walt Jocketty's moves the most.

They always load up on pitching, and they make a lot of buy low moves, and don't invest heavily in free agency, but rather through their draft movements. When trades make sense to help their organizations win, like McGwire, Rolen and Cliff Lee, they make them. They make good sound choices one after another.

I know there are other good GM's, but I want to hear what GM's you guys like. What do you appreciate in a good GM.

Done a fantastic job!

Billy Beane is probably my favorite and the best at taking lemons and making lemonade.

What trades are you talking about?

The moves Hunnington has made in the last 3 years have been very good for the organization.

The question is wether or not the team finally sticks to this plan or decides to give up half way through like they have the past two decades.

Bonifay and Littlefield were awful.

Hunnington, not so bad. At least not yet.

John Schuerholz I admired most. He took a bad franchise and turned it around.

This coming from a Mets dieharder too. But, the guy was resposible for putting together consistently, homegrown great teams from 1991-2005.
