@Diane Nguyen 9ers fan Right. Stan already decided to fire him. They just want to let the new GM do it.

Mattingly will be fired the day after the new GM is hired.

I like that he had to look down and check his notes for his wife's and children's names.

@Disgruntled Goat @JackedNate With the punctuation eliminating Cap'n and the fact that the comment does not refer to Drank, flow chart tells me that this was actually from Goat. Sorry Jack Ed, but you did not write this comment.

@P_F_P @MajorPuigBaseball Also, know who wouldn't be here if they had hired a new GM mid-season? Andrew Friedman, who was still under contract with the Rays.

Kind of like this: A numbers guy is the one who develops, say, a team's proprietary WAR fromula. A President of Baseball Operations who is into analytics might not be able to do that, but can REVIEW it, determine whether or not the process involved makes sense, and then add that information to traditional scouting info to determine whether he finds a player to be a good value.

Earlier there was a discussion regarding Logan White. I believe the question was "who has contributed since 2008 draft." I did some research and present it here:


2008: Ethan Martin & Josh Lindblom (traded for Shane Victorino), Dee Gordon, Nathan Eovaldi (traded for Hanley), Allen Webster & Jerry Sands (traded as part of package for CC, A-Gon, Beckett, Punto), Nick "Chili" Buss, Daniel Coulumbe, who didn't sign.

2009: Steve Ames (traded for Ricky Nolasco)

2010: Joc, Red Patterson, and Shawn Tolleson have all seen time with the big league club. Also, failed to sign Kevin Gausman, who's been a pretty good bullpen arm for the Orioles.

2011: Nobody has yet made it to the majors, but some good prospects in Chris Reed & Alex Santana, plus a couple of interesting guys like O'Koyea Dickson. Easily the worst class I reviewed, though.

2012: Paco, Onelki. & Daniel Coulombe have already pitched at the major league level. Ned turned Jesmuel Valentin into Fauxto Carmondez. Corey Seager is one of the best prospects in baseball, and there are a bunch of other interesting guys in this class: Jharel Cotton, Darnell Sweeney, Zach Bird, Ross Stripling, Lindsey Caughel, Joey Curletta, Justin Chigbogu

2013 & 2014: It's WAY too early to start judging these guys, but definitely some interesting prospects.

@Disgruntled Goat @Dave! (Or Justin Turner, Maybe) Here's the only interview question you ever need: "So, what did you think of the Dodgers' Juan Pierre contract?"

@Tymathee She also has a history with the Dodgers, having been an Assistant GM from 2001-2011.

@Tymathee She has been one of the top GM candidates in MLB for quite a while - she first interviewed for a GM position in 2005, when Ned was hired. Since then, she's been a candidate for the Mariners (Who hired Jack Z), the Padres (hired Jed Hoyer), Angels (Jerry DiPoto), and Padres again (AJ Preller).

@capnsparrow  @efb @Dave! (Or Justin Turner, Maybe) @Purple Drank @WBBsAs (In Dog We Trust. Un Planeta Sin Gatos) I don't think Friedman will move Kemp. I think Kemp will play mediocre to bad right field and mash the shit out of baseballs. And steal 10-15 bases.

@Dustin Nosler @Tymathee He does do some things well. As much as we all rip some of his personnel moves, he does seem to be a smart dude.

@Tymathee He was under contract. Had to pay him anyways, might as well let him save some face and still have access to the company cafeteria.

@Purple Drank @WBBsAs (In Dog We Trust. Un Planeta Sin Gatos) IF Friedman moves Kemp, it won't be because of salary concerns alone. Most likely it would be defense concerns.

@Tired Maths Cat Your application probably crossed Ned's desk rather than Stan's. One look at the name, and he scoffed "MATH Cat? HA! I would never hire someone who likes math. NERDS!"

I am so excited for the, oh, 2018 or so Dodgers. Kasten & Walters have put so much effort into upgrading the front office, prying away the best scouting people from other teams. With the departure of DeJon Watson and the fact that the team now has some decent young guys in the system, I expect Kasten & Friedman to start going after the best development people from other teams - executives & minor league coaches & instructors with proven, tangible, quantifiable results.
