Eppler not interviewed for Padres’ GM opening


It’s still not official, but the Padres are expected to introduce Red Sox assistant GM Jed Hoyer as their new general manager sometime soon. The team had reportedly expressed interest in Billy Eppler, the Yanks’ director of pro scouting, for the position, though apparently he was never interviewed for the gig. Like Hoyer, Eppler’s one of the game’s better young GM prospects, so it’s only a matter of time before someone hires him away from the boys in the Bronx. For now though, the Yanks are more than happy to have him.

    Great. Junichi Kanazawa and Mike Lowell for Adrian Gonzalez is right around the corner.

    Here’s hoping Mr. Eppler has a few more great finds in him before he’s hired away.

    AAAAlright. I’m getting a little sick of seeing guys with no shirts on every ad on this website. Anyone else think this is a little gay?

      The ad I have right now is a girl in a bikini (from the waist up).

      Yin and yang, my friend.

      How is it gay exactly?

      I always thought gay referred to two men liking each other.

    Wasn’t Eppler the guy who was so excited about the opportunity to get Igawa?

    Maybe our FO told theirs they were welcome to Eppler if they’d take Igawa too…
