Top President / EVP Candidates?

Recommended Posts

Ty Brooks is an obvious fit for this job. He's worked with very good organizations and in positions of rebuild. He has a scouting and player development background and has worked in all facets of the game. He is a local, very hungry, and wants nothing more than to bring a winner back to Baltimore. He is also a close personal childhood friend. Make it happen!

He would be on my short list.

Same was true of Matt Klentak, now Philly’s GM.

Klentak was credited with claiming Darren O'Day off of waivers in 2011 between when MacPhail left and Duquette was hired.

I thought Buck got the credit for that one?

He certainly was by some.  Maybe he should’t have been, or maybe the two were working together?

What, an interim GM and a manager who talk with each other?   Inconceivable!

 They need string baseball scouting background Ng does not have.

Not calling you out but this line seems to be showing up constantly.  If Ng is hired as the President does anyone really think She does not have the ability to surround herself with people that can assist her in her endeavors??  The President title does enable that person to hire people that will assist them in decision making.

This hiring needs to happen soon.  Presume 2-3 weeks after the hiring to interview and hire a GM, and that gives the GM only a couple of weeks to evaluate talent before the Winter Meetings.  Couple this with the need to square up the 40 man roster and this hiring needs to happen post haste.

The Winter Meetings are not a big deal to the O's.   They are not going to sign expensive FA.   Graham can set the 40 man roster for the Rule 5 draft.

The important thing is to hire the right executives to put the team on a good path to the future.

I believe it is Ben Cherington job as pbo and josh McLeod as the gm.  They need string baseball scouting background Ng does not have.

You say you “believe” it is Cherington’s job as PBO & McLeod as GM.  What leads you to believe this?  Do you have a source that has told you this, or are you just speculating?  I hope you are right, because I think that would be a great combo, and it would make some sense because they worked together for many years in Boston and presumably have a good relationship.

True this.

    • Curve Halt Baysox, 7-0 Bowie stays one game back with Erie loss at Harrisburg.   BOWIE, Md. – Sean Brady tossed a complete-game shutout to lead the Altoona Curve to a 7-0 win over the Bowie Baysox in front of 4,973 at Prince George's Stadium Friday night.   Chris Sharpe hit a solo home run off Alex Wells in the fourth inning to break up the scoreless deadlock, while three RBI doubles by Jason Delay, Adrian Valerio and Sharpe sparked a 6-run fifth inning to put the Curve (29-33) ahead 7-0.    A bright spot for the Baysox (41-21) came from their bullpen, which combined to throw 4 2/3 scoreless innings after Wells was removed from the contest. Francisco Jimenez struck out a pair of batters in 1 2/3 innings, while Brian Gonzalez worked through two clean frames. Zach Muckenhirn completed a perfect ninth inning to wrap up a solid relief effort.   The Maryland Crab Cakes make their debut when they and Altoona square off in the penultimate home game at Prince George’s Stadium Saturday night at 6:35 p.m. RHP Michael Baumann (4-2, 2.31 ERA) faces LHP Cam Vieaux (3-3, 2.27 ERA). The first 500 fans (ages 13+) receive a pair of Bay-socks upon entrance at the front gate.
