They actually had some players in the farm system. We had some offensive players but NO pitching (unless you count Maholm).

NH had to trade for all of our starters.

Btw, you forgot the Nats….:). They got two of their SPs in 2007 (Zim and Detwiler).

Winning organizations expect more from their GM. How many loosing seasons should get? I say 5 but others suggest 6 losing season are acceptable. How bad does Huntington have to be before you fire him?

I have two things that will solve our issues. Get better scouts and start spending some cash on free agents. Done and done

I personally favored a change, but one thing that bothers me is the assumption that many are making that a change will automatically make us better. That is just not true.

In his tenure the Rays, A’s, Twins, Orioles, Indians, Dbacks, Rockies and Reds have all made the playoffs. Not sure I really buy the we are better defense. the fact is we should be better than we are.

Bob said it himself….the org is much better off than it was before NH came.

I was ONLY replying to your ‘Any other organization would have fired their GM if they had similar results.’
