If at First You Don't Succeed, Rewrite the Job Description
A's AGM Paul DePodesta is said to be interested. I would be nervous about a Beane disciple in the Dodgers henhouse as it gives Beane another dumping ground for his failures. With the A's farm system in steep decline, the idea of Beane using PDP as a conduit for inhaling the best of our young talent is just frightening.
Update: The San Francisco Chronicle indicated today that Beane was approached by Boston and turned down once before Schott relented. But that was before Beane re-signed to an 8-year contract extension. Would Schott really go through all that drama queen stuff again?
