The people over at blastingsthrilledge.blogspot.com, a good Mets and general baseball blog, have been counting down the worst GMs in baseball, and so far have put together a pretty good list of:
But now Blastings is asking for input from their readers on who should be picked next, and we need to make sure JimBo gets his due.
The poll options are Bowden, Omar, Riccardi, Gillick, Melvin, and Other. Omar is leading, which is to be expected on a Mets blog, especially given their recent turmoil, but there's no chance he's really the worst on this list. Just recently Riccardi pulled ahead of JimBo for 2nd place, and he's made his share of mistakes, but just imagine for one minute how Bowden's boys would fare in the AL East. Gillick and Melvin have gotten basically no votes, which is appropriate--neither of these guys are going to make anyone's "best GMs" list, but they don't belong in this bottom tier.
JimBo needs your help! Don't let him get left out of the fun! He NEEDS to be picked next! Head over there and cast your ballot.
