Eppler replacements

Recommended Posts

While many people here have talked about Eppler getting replaced at the end of the season (I am of course infamous for this), I feel like no one has ever actually talked about who they'd like to have replace him.  So regardless of if you think Eppler deserves to be fired or not, if Arte elects to not renew his contract, who do you want to replace him?  I personally would like to hire a GM whose strength is player development.

I'd try and lure some of the second in command GM's behind a President of Baseball Ops with a "President of Baseball Ops" title of their own to be the President of Baseball Ops and GM.

Some guys that could fit that: Jed Hoyer, Mike Chernoff, Thad Levine, and David Forst.

My preference would be David Forst because 1) I think he is a really good GM and 2) your gain is the A's loss.

Subject: I      

Compound verb: try and lure 

adverb: would

Direct object: some

The rest are  prepositional phrases: the first modifies the direct object, the second modifies the first prep phrase

 

Do you see what Covid has done to me?

Well there you have the compelling evidence produced by the LA Times.
They must know something. I wonder if Eppler has already taken his pictures down in his office.

If no games get played or very few I just don't see a way Eppler gets fired. If Arte was so fed up with him he wouldn't have let him play out his contract.

people get fired in this line of work because the players or their team don't perform. if there's no season, there's no reason to fire or promote him or anyone else. 

why anyone here wants to discuss this right now seems ridiculous to me.
