Is what a joke the other GMs considered Littlefield to be.

Is there any doubt the return in all of these trades would have been far less with DL at the helm?

Check out this snippet from the mlb.com article on the trade:
Quote:
Former Pirates general manager Dave Littlefield, now a special assistant to Hendry, had scouted Gorzelanny in the Minors. The lefty won 14 games in 2007, his first full season in the Majors. When Hendry talked to the left-hander, he said, "Gorzelanny seemed like the happiest guy on the planet."

"We've always liked him," Hendry said. "Dave Littlefield feels he's back on the path to where he was."

The gift that keeps on giving?

If DL was the driving force behind them getting Gorzy, I feel loads better about this trade!
