Here is the first full GM score table; this will be the new format (at least until I get another way to improve them). I’m going to do this for all active GMs with all of their moves and the WAR they produced. This will be updated after each season. Eventually I’ll be adding scores for each GM to be able to compare them to other GMs. First up is Jeff Luhnow of the Astros.
Luhnow is in the middle of his first season as GM; many of the deals he’s made will not see a true value until the minor leaguers develop. We’re also going to have to wait a few years to see what his draftees are going to do.
