Former Mets GM remembers Jerry Krause’s skills as a baseball scout

Both before and after his time as the general manager who helped the Bulls win six championships in the 1990s, Jerry Krause worked in baseball as a scout.

He worked for seven different teams dating back to the 1970s and all the way up to into the 2010s: the White Sox, the Cleveland Indians, Oakland Athletics, Seattle Mariners, New York Yankees, New York Mets and Arizona Diamondbacks.

While “The Last Dance” is exploring what kind of general manager he was in the NBA, what kind of scout was Krause in Major League Baseball?

“He was a hard worker and had great knowledge on how to break down a player from a scouting perspective,” former Mets general manager Omar Minaya told the New York Post’s Ken Davidoff. “He also had a real eye for seeking out those diamond-in-the-rough players.
