I think that all the flack that Reagins has received this off season is a bit premature. He has a pretty good track record over the last couple of years (with Fuentes being the debatable exception).

Gary Matthews Jr.’s deal is quite debatable.

Stoneman was responsible for that deal, not Reagins.

Got it, actually noticed that right after I responded. Apologies.

Good Grief…Just reviewed “all” of Bavasi’s moves, even when he was with the Angels. Has this guy EVER made a meaningful trade to benefit the team?

It’s pretty evident that he’s great at swapping trades with cheezy players on both sides. And of course giving talent away for nothing.

FINALLY we have a compitent GM!

HAIL THE Z MAN!!!

Without going into the Adam Jones debacle, Shin Soo Choo for Ben Broussard, Matt Thornton for Joe Borchard, Carlos Guillen for no one, Freddy Garcia (who at the time was a phenomenal pitcher) for Morse and Reed, Rafael Soriano for Horacio Ramirez…

Wow-Bavasi was the worst. Also signed Mo Vaughn’s monster deal while GM of the Angels, and signed Sexson and Carlos Silva to the worst deals in M’s history.

ouch.

thats a bit of a stretch. KRods antics make him a bit more feared by opponents in the ninth, but I agree that he is a smuck.

Bavasi is the worst GM in the history of the M’s. It wasn’t like ownership was forcing him to cut payroll, the thing is he had total control Sextons deal wasn’t too bad, the bad part it was for 4 years, the first two years weren’t that bad.

Beltre signing was a great deal as well as the Ibanez deal. Beyond that he didn’t make a positive impact for the Mariners. BTW: The Ibanez signing had more to do with Mariners Brass “Chuck Armstrong” then anyone else. The Mariners Management and scouts loved Ibanez the first time around in the 90’s.

Ichiro extension was a positive (but again, ownership took that and Johjima’s deal out of Bavasi’s hands). Lopez was extended for next to nothing, and while he’s not everyone’s favorite, it’s hard to argue that he’s not a bargain.
I suppose the Betancourt extension negates the Lopez deal, however.

Curious, What was the Marinersphere’s opinion on the Moyer trade? It seems to me like a pitcher of his ilk, traded during a playoff run, usually bring AT LEAST a top 20 prospect. Ms got absolutely shite for him in that deal, and he went on to pitch some big wins for the Phils.
