Angels Pursuing Rays GM Andrew Friedman

NBC Sports' Hardball Talk passes along a report from the Sports Blog Nation DRays Bay that Arte Moreno, Angels team president John Carpino, and Rays GM Andrew Friedman were seen having dinner in a St. Petersburg restaurant.

If that happens, it would be the third GM ganked this year from that chair and into another one, as Bleed Cubbie Blue reports Jed Hoyer will leave the Padres to become the Cubs' GM. How this happened I have no idea, but it seems ridiculous to me that the smaller market teams are letting bigger market teams just yank their GMs like that. (I assume the Rays gave the Angels permission to speak with Friedman. If not, it could be considered interference.)

Labels: , , , , ,

Several folks over at HH have suggested, and some published reports confirm, that Friedman is pretty much an at-will employee for the Rays (i.e., not really under contract). Here is one such report.

If that's the case, then the Angels technically would not need the Rays' permission to talk to him.
