No I don't, I think I'm being perfectly objective in my analysis. Don't get me wrong, I'm not sitting here claiming Homer is a terrible GM. I don't think he's in the bottom 5 of GMs. I also don't think he's in the top 5. I'd say he's certainly in the top half. What is so wrong about wanting to see improvement? Why are so many people comfortable with the status quo? We should always be improving, GM included.

And I'm not discounting the many good things he's done either. But as Jester said, the man walked into a team budding with young talent, and a buttload of money to spend. Since that season (where he spent said money) he's been making moves, and then making secondary moves to fit the former move under the cap. A little foresight would go a long way sometimes.
