Yes, plenty of legit ways to show Terry Ryan was a mediocre at best GM, and I agree he was.
They don't have to be inducted to the Hall of Fame to be included. For example, it is pretty safe to say that none of Ryan & Co's picks from 1994 to 2011 will make it to the Hall of Fame, with the potential exception of maybe Mauer and that is very unlikely. For picks drafter from 2012-2016 we will know in 2-3 years or so.
How about rings? World Series appearances? Better way to judge a GM and FO?
Because the result is the same as far as Ryan goes.
I just think hof players drafted isn't a very good one.
