The GM has no influence on the game decisions. All he can do is build a team with enough talent to have a chance; he can't pull the strings on the field. Having said that, I will concede that the GM has to be on the hook for hiring the manager who WILL take the team over the top, so from that perspective, I agree with you. I don’t agree.

It's on both of them in both circumstances. I'm simply trying to point out that Bean has a lot of work to do this season, and if he doesn't do a good job it's going to put his whole body of work into question.

If they are not winning playoff games, that's on the manager. My two cents, anyways. I think if the team is winning division titles, the GM is doing his job.

Horrific failure is a bit different than a failure. I think he has a lot to prove with what he does this season, because they still have some valuable assets on a non-contender.

If good results are only measured by trips to the World Series, then fine, Oakland is a horrific failure under Beane. But I think you're being a bit harsh given the circumstances.

With the lack of results out of the old talent does the new talent need to succed in order to legitimze Billy's career? After the brief history lesson…how credible is Bean’s body of work?
