The Padres are nearing a decision on their next general manager

6 Comments

Padres manager Bud Black told MLB Network Radio today that he expects the team to name a new general manager within the next 48 hours.

As we noted yesterday, Yankees assistant general manager Billy Eppler is viewed as the front-runner,, but several others have been mentioned for the job, including Kim Ng and even Kevin Towers.

Now that the trading deadline is over and the Padres have unloaded most of what they need to unload, the urgency for a new GM isn’t quite what it was. But whoever gets the job has a big job ahead of them.
