A new era.
This feels refreshing...even without having the slightest clue how this will turn out.
At minimum he at least hates the Angels as much as we do, solid bond to start off on
If Dipoto becomes Mariners GM, I wouldn't be surprised if Scott Servais (Angels AGM, in charge of scouting & PD) joins him in some capacity.— Alden Gonzalez (@Alden_Gonzalez) September 28, 2015
Servais has proven track record, well-regarded in the game, but I've heard there's not much for him here given prior tension w/ Scioscia.— Alden Gonzalez (@Alden_Gonzalez) September 28, 2015
Only person that is safe is probably Edgar ( I dont think DiPoto is crazy enough to send him packing with Lloyd...I'd hope not)
I was ready for the team to blow up but I guess there's not point now, team isnt that far off. Shortstop is no longer a question at least.
BP is a mess
By all accounts, DiPoto is a really good GM, should be a net positive. Like was said above, he'll have a burning hatred for LAA that won't go away for quite a while. Add to that the fact that he's intimately familiar with the AL West and it's a win all around.
I'm sure Lloyd is gone, if I was JD I would want to hire my own dude.
As for talent? We need a bunch of guys BUT were not THAT far away.
Absolutely NO way should they sign Cespedes. The dude is a circus in the OF. We've got enough "OFs" that can't OF.
Is Sims signed for 2016? Enough is enough.
Am I the only one who hates Sims?!
yeah, I mean it sucks for Lloyd...I think he's a decent manager
but if you're in DiPoto's shoes...you dont take this job to potentially deal with another headache like he did in Anaheim
Unless Lloyd concedes to alot of things Jerry will want to put in place (That was completely dismissed in Anaheim)
