Generic News Update

Josh Byrnes to Arizona is a done deal, Brian Cashman and Jim Bowden are officially back with New York and Washington respectively, and, perhaps most relevant to the Phillies ongoing GM search, Paul Depodesta was fired by the Los Angeles Dodgers.

DePo to the top of the list?

As much as I'd like to see him get an interview for the job, I don't see it happening. I think he is the best candidate out there right now and did a good job in his 2 years in LA, but the stigma of being a "stats geek" was too much for Dodger ownership to deal with. The current Dodger leadership group with Frank McCourt as majority owner is an absolute joke. McCourt makes Montgomery look baseball savvy - although not quite bright enough to take the chance on DePodesta.

As for DePo, his future is bright - there are rumored offers coming in from Colorado and Oakland already with more on the way I'd imagine. It might be smart to take a job as an assistant or special advisor for a year in order to regroup. If he goes this route, I fully expect him to be a hot name when teams are looking for a GM in 2006.
