A look at 10 men who should be considered to run a baseball operations department.

Welcome to Top 10 Week. All week long, various BP authors will be revealing their Top 10s in various categories. Today we start off with Will Carroll ranking the 10 best general manager candidates.

A couple years back, I did a list of the "next GM" crop. It's one of those innocuous exercises that nonetheless tells us a lot about what's going on inside of the front offices. We hear about GMs, about trades, about drafts, but even in Moneyball and earlier in Dollar Sign on the Muscle, we seldom hear about the day-to-day operations carried out by a group of people that is overworked, underpaid, and most importantly, vastly overqualified. This is a group that years ago would be more likely to be putting together a hedge fund, working for the State Department, or something a bit more "important" than the game of baseball.

Prospectus Q&A: Mike Hazen


David Laurila

Boston's director of player development discusses the team's minor league system and player development philosophy.

A native of Abington, Massachusetts, Hazen was an All-Ivy League outfielder at Princeton University in 1997 and 1998 and played two years in the minors before joining the Indians organization as a scout. David talked to Hazen about the Red Sox player development system and about some of the organization's best young prospects.

Wait 'Til Next Year: The Scouting Directors, AL East


Bryan Smith

Bryan continues his analysis of the draft tendencies of scouting directors.

Two weeks ago, I started an attempt to identify the drafting tendencies of MLB scouting directors. I surmised that any person of power in sport falls back on his own patterns of informed behavior when making important choices. This is basically a case study in making a mock draft without inside knowledge--I'm wondering what the past can tell us about the future.
