    When I think of Gene Michael, I think of him being in the George Steinbrenner Parade of Hirings and Firings much more than I do his actual accomplishments as player, manager, GM, and scout. George Weiss, OTOH, put together some of the Yankees' all-time greatest teams.

    I went with Gene Michael for one reason ... Roberto Kelly for Paul O'Neill ... 'nuff said.

    Would you take 4 championships over 9?

    Best argument against Weiss is he was a massive cheapskate and something of a racist as well.
