Eight offseason questions for baseball executives - ESPN

In keeping with another November tradition, ESPN.com polled 28 general managers, assistant GMs, senior advisers, scouts and other baseball talent evaluators on eight questions that will be front-and-center during Hot Stove season. They responded via email or phone on the condition of anonymity.

Mariners notebook: Like rumors? GM meetings should provide a bunch | Mariners Insider - The News Tribune

Here’s a potential buy-low pickup.

Mariners general manager Jack Zduriencik is expected to try to gauge trade interest in outfielder Michael Saunders over the next few days.

Saunders, who turns 28 later this month, is a left-handed hitter who doesn’t appear to fit with the club’s future plans. Even so, club officials believe Saunders has value; nothing suggests they are looking to just dump him.

One possibility is Toronto, which is looking for someone capable of playing left and/or center field. Saunders is eligible for arbitration, but his projected $2.9 million salary makes him a potential fit for many clubs.

AJC: Hart says ‘yes’ to Braves, will head baseball operations

Hart, 66, was named Thursday to the newly created position of president of baseball operations for the Braves, signing a three-year contract that runs through the 2017 season, which would be the Braves’ first season in their new ballpark just under construction in Cobb County.

The team will still presumably replace fired general manager Frank Wren with another person who’ll report to Hart. Current assistant general manager John Coppolella, 36, is believed to be a frontrunner for that position, an arrangement that would allow “Coppy” to, in effect, be groomed on the job while Hart is there to oversee operations.
