Oh, no not Brian Cashman. My bad. I’m talking about Triple-A Scranton GM Jeremy Ruby, who resigned to take over as the athletic director of the Abington Heights School District. His responsibilities will also include “working on ways to help the district raise funds to address an ever-widening gap between the district’s income and expenses.” Ruby had been with the Scranton franchise since 1999, when it was it a Phillies affiliate.
A minor league GM is a manager in the more traditional sense. He/she won’t sign or trade for players, but they make sure everything is running smoothly. Minor league clubs are businesses and are there to make money, and someone has to oversee that operation.
