Sports Weekly mentioned something about Pat Gillick being the front runner for the Dogers GM job. I kinda feel sorry for Dan Evans. Joe Sheehan wrote about the situation and Evans performance today on baseball prospectus. He really hasn't done that bad. Keep in mind Gillick is the man who at the trading deadline last year, went out and acquired Rey Sanchez as the finaly push to get the Mariners into the playoffs. That worked out real well.

Evans hasn't done that bad? Trading two even moderately adequate MLB players for Todd Hundley is reason enough for emptying out your office.

Have we not gone over this enough? That was a deal that didn't work out, but had very good potential for the Dodgers? Learn to see the bigger picture.

A guy who is known as "Stand Pat" shouldn't exactly inspire confidence in getting a deal done anyway...

Where were you singing the praises of Grudz and Karros last offseason? Those two contracts were considered to be immovable and Evans moved them allowing the payroll flexibility to sign a free agent. That the free agent happened to be McGriff and he didn't perform particularly well happens to be another issue. However, I think its overly simplistic to say Grudz and Karros did well and Hundley is terrible so its a bad deal when the entire point of the deal was moving two players that wouldn't start for to the Dodgers and freeing up payroll for that season in return.
