The Moore the Merrier

Of the three candidates recently interviewed by Red Sox officials, only Dayton Moore, the Atlanta assistant general manager, has been called back for a second interview. Jim Beattie is another aspirant to meet with the club’s brass; his interview with Larry Lucchino and Tom Werner occurred today. The other former candidates, Jim Bowden (Nationals GM) and Wayne Krivsky (Twins assistant GM), probably got the form letter that spoke of there being other more qualified candidates and wishing them bright futures. How convenient that they can read of their hiring status in newspapers rather than having to go through the blockade of human resources personnel and their vague statements.

Moore will likely be a good fit. Baseball America ranked the Braves farm system fifth in March of this year, and Moore played a large part in building this aspect of the team. Jeff Francoeur, a product of that system, came in third for NL Rookie of the Year voting despite not starting this season. Minor League News also ranks Atlanta’s prospect pool high with a 9.6 out of 10.

I’m a bit disappointed that the Red Sox didn’t give Kim Ng a try, but she’ll probably be promoted to GM of the Dodgers. Hopefully Frank McCourt will have learned some patience so this new experiment is not doomed to fail.
