Shapiro is viewed of much more highly than just as a run-of-the-mill GM. I know some of the moves he makes are questionable, but so are a lot of GMs, even the good ones make some mistakes. I have it on pretty good authority that Shapiro is one of the most widely respected GMs in the game, and also considered one of the top GMs in the league (somewhere in the Top 10 or very close to it). If he were fired or let go, he wouldn't be out of a job for long.

If he can find employment elsewhere and is better than Epstein, why would he want to work for Dolan when he could go to a large market and get the budget to win a title?

Ask this same question to the Terry Ryan and Billy Beane, guys who are in the Top 5.

You are being intellectually dishonest here. "Magnitude" above? You do realize the Twins payroll in 2006 was $63M and the A's was $62M....and the Indians was $56M. Were they above the Indians? Yes. Significantly? No.
