BP Chats

DateQuestionAnswer
2008-06-26 13:00:00 (link to chat)Hey Dayn, Do you have a favorite canidate for the Mariner's GM job? What are the odds the M's hire that canidate and not Steve Phillips. Please tell me they won't hire Steve Phillips.
(Nick from NYC)
I'd love to see Chris Antonetti get a shot, and Paul DePodesta certainly merits another crack at it. If Kevin Towers decides to step aside in San Diego, then he'd be a great fit. As I recall, he's an Oregon native, so he's got ties to the region. Others ... Dan Evans, Larry Dierker (pulled that out of my hat, but why not?), Kim Ng . (Dayn Perry)
