Just wondering

Was it Jerry that advised the Yankees to make the trade for Esteban Loaiza




The reconstruction of the Yankees' minor league system continued Wednesday when scout Jerry Krause, the former Chicago Bulls GM, was not asked back after one season. Krause, who had the title of special assistant in baseball operations, spent most of the summer working in the Illinois area and did some crosschecking work for Lin Garrett, who has been reassigned to foreign scouting.

It took the Yankmees no time to fire "crumbs" Krause.Reinsdorf let him stick around long enough to win 6 titles,break up the team,bring in his college coach "fishin' buddy" (Tim Floyd),leave him with a team that couldn't win 20 games in a short season,draft panty waists like Chandler and Curry,and THEN he fired Krause,leaving John Paxson with an impossible mess to clean up.

All of which proves that organizations don't win championships but sometimes they can't PREVENT great players from winning them. Reinsdorf couldn't even be honest about the fact that he was firing Krause, suggesting that he was leaving due to illness or something.

Jerry Krause lucked out when the Portland Trailblazers picked Sam Bowie ahead of MJ.

If I recall, Jerry Krause didn't become GM until 1985, which was MJ's second year.
