Sources: Angels to bring in at least 7 candidates for GM position

The Los Angeles Angels have interviewed or will interview at least seven executives for their open general manager role.

Sources told ESPN the list includes Athletics assistant general manager/director of player personnel Billy Owens, Padres senior advisor/director of player personnel Logan White, Nationals special assistant to the general manager Dan Jennings, Cubs senior VP for player personnel Jason McLeod, former Marlins president of baseball operations Michael Hill and two Diamondbacks executives with the title senior vice president and assistant GM: Amiel Sawdaye and Jared Porter.

This list is notable because all of the candidates have backgrounds in scouting more so than administration.

I'd love to see Logan White get the job. His time in Los Angeles and San Diego have been marked with a slew of top prospects and great farm development. The Angels could use that type of leadership.

Or just hire someone from the Tampa system. Those guys seem to know what they are doing.

Interviewer: Do you have a vision you're looking to implement across the entire organization?

Candidate: Absolutely! Would you like me to tell you about it?

Interviewer: No, I've heard enough. NEXT!

Which of them has the best jawline and the highest butt? No redheads, I assume.

the only way to close the circle on this weird offseason of hires is to tap whitey herzog for the position.

wasn't he in charge of the angels once before?

If it isn't Pat Gillick, I'll be saddened. He's only 7 years older than Tony La Russa!

#8 Why not go all the way? A medium and Branch Rickey.
