The October 20th, 2011 edition of daily news for the LA Angels including Kim Ng to interview for Angels general manager opening, Rich Hahn and Tory Hernandez also to get interviews, a post-mortem on the 2011 Angels season and much more…
The Monkey Says: Kim Ng would be the first female GM in major professional sports, which is kind of the reason that I think she might soon emerge as the front-runner. This is totally just a hunch, but I think being the guy to break the glass ceiling really appeals to Moreno. On the flip side, I don’t know if Arte is going to want a new GM that will instantly be polarizing and highly scrutinized in the way Reagins was by the end of his run, though likely without as much vitriol from Tony.
The Monkey Says: I am all for Hahn getting an interview as he might be the hottest name when it comes to prospective GMs. The interview for Hernandez worries me though just because he is an internal candidate and it had seemed like the Angels were going out of their way to avoid that. Call me cynical, but his entry into the pool, coupled with the exclusion of Gary DiSarcina thus far, has me wondering if maybe Hernandez has been the guy all along and all of these other interviews are just part of a well-orchestrated charade, although I don’t know if Moreno is clever and under-handed enough to pull of such a scheme. All of these interviews are set to go down in the next week apparently, so we should hopefully have an idea of who the Angels will hire by the end of the month.
The Monkey Says: The author of this post might be a genius and is clearly an up and coming writing talent I also hear he is very handsome.
The Monkey Says: The item is no longer for sale, but the guy was asking for $20,000 and I really have a hard time believing someone actually ponied up for it. From the way his description is written, I think there is 20% chance that he stole it.
