08:19 AM ET 06.22 | Gord Ash, now Brewers' assistant GM, didn't see it at the time, but now admires Billy Beane's approach -- though perhaps not philosophically. "I looked back on it and what they really deserved credit for was their slavish approach to their plan. They didn't vary. 'This is our plan. We're going to do this. We don't care what people say.' They were slaves to it. When I look back at the unwinding of my tenure (as Jays' GM from '95 to '01), we had no plan. There are reasons we had no plan, but we didn't know from week-to-week, month-to-month what we were able to do, but the A's had a plan." ... In stating he had no plan, Ash is indirectly indicting franchise ownership and the muddled leadership of then team president Paul Godfrey.

Gord Ash was the Jays GM. If he indicted anyone, he indicted his fat self. What a loser.
