I thought this was a good, quick write-up of some of the experienced GM's out there. However, about Friedman ... Last night I was listening to one of the sports radio shows and I learned something about Friedman I didn't know. Not only is the potential ownership group for the Astros seemingly interested in bringing Friedman as the next GM, but if that deal falls through, Friedman's father is leading a group that may be the next in line to purchase the Astros. If that's the case, I doubt that Friedman does anything until that situation is sorted out. If the sale is finalized soon, then maybe the Cubs could be in play with the new owners of the Astros for Friedman's services, but if not, I think the Cubs have to wait as well. It wouldn't be a good idea to have a GM whose father is the majority owner of a rival team in the division.
