Alex Remington asks the question 'Who do you think are the best GMs in the game?' His answer:
I think everyone here will probably have Theo Epstein and Andrew Friedman near the top of their lists, right along with (and maybe even higher than the ringless) Billy Beane. Epstein and Friedman have won 3 of the last 5 AL pennants between them, and maintain two of the most stacked major league teams, along with two of the most stacked minor league teams. That's a pretty good recipe for long-term success."
