Yeah, pretty sure Helling came as a FA but still, you look at every deal TR does andh e almost never does a bad one and almost always gets the best of the deal. Didn't he also get Johan Santana from Florida for a bag of balls, or its equivilant? What could that man do with an extra 100mil in payroll like some of the other gm's.

Yay for BatGirl legovision!

Tom

I adore all things BatGirl.
Thank you for adding her to your series.

Jason R.

Wait a minute...those are Legos! I thought your GM jsut had a very pointy head.

Actually, I feel that Ryan and Hendry are similar in many ways. Ryan has just had the benefit of a very weak division to get him repeatedly into the playoffs. That being said, he is a very good GM.

TR smiling for the cameras in every shot is classic. Excellent work, Bat-Girl. Legos don't lie.

spycake

Good one, BG. The Lego man really looks like TR. Must be the hair.

Although, he didn't get Rick Helling from the Phillies -- I believe he got minor league reliever Bobby Korecky (as a "player to be named later", I think).

James

...screw it up like most of those general managers (i.e. Bill Bavasi, Dan Duquette, Steve Phillips, Brian Cashman, Kevin Malone). I sure hope I don't have to add Jim Hendry to the list.

Gotta love the Bat Girl
