Dick Monfort Doesn't Know All The GMs, But Thinks Dan O'Dowd Is Just Super

Colorado Rockies owner Dick Monfort is a busy man, which means he can't know the other 29 general managers in the majors. However, he does Dan O'Dowd and, well, Danny Boy is apparently just the best (via the Denver Post):

"He's a tremendous asset," Monfort said. "I can't think of a general manager in baseball that's as good as him. Granted, I don't know all of them. I do get a chance every once in a while to speak with them, but I just think (O'Dowd) is head and shoulders above everybody else."

All right, all right. Stop laughing. OK, laugh a bit more.

Look, if O'Dowd was head and shoulders above all the other GMs then the Rockies would be better than they have been over the last few seasons. Sure, he doesn't determine how the players he acquired actually, you know, play, but when failure is handed out when can dole it out to more than the individual. It spreads up top to the manager and the GM.

And to Monfort himself, as he points out.
