Still there are chances to take that are worthy and others that are not. If he's smart, he'd recognized that we're not 1 player away from the silver trophy. If so, he's not going to overpay to get him. Taking chances doesn't mean being stupid.

Having said that, a GM is paid to get things done. Everybody knows it takes 2 to tango and that's it not easy in a cap world and so on.....but he's still paid to succeed and get things done. Chiarelli got things done. Other GM's have as well.

Gainey has to be recognize for having turn this franchise to pathetic to good. Then, it's another thing to go from good to great and it remains to be seen if he can do that.
