JON HEYMAN IS AN IDIOT

Jon Heyman of SI.com posted his rankings of the ten best GM's in Major League Baseball today.

I know I'm totally biased when it comes to this particular list and I'm not saying KT is the BEST GM in all of baseball...but to say he's TIED for the tenth best is asinine.

Even more insulting is the fact that KT is tied for tenth with the GM of the White Sox, Ken Williams. Yes. Ken Williams. The same guy who signed Scott Linebrink to a four-year deal for $19 million dollars.

Luckily KT got "bonus points" because he was Theo Epstein's manager...otherwise he wouldn't have even made Heyman's top ten.

10T. Kevin Towers, Padres. Another very good trader and master of the bargain-basement pickup, he and his scouts have been especially good at acquiring pitching help (see this offseason's addition of ex-phenom Mark Prior). Towers is unafraid to use soft-tossers, and not just closer Trevor Hoffman, who have become a San Diego staple. But much like past Padre teams, you wonder where the offense is coming from. Gets bonus points as Epstein's mentor.
