The Red Sox seem to be hearing, ‘No thanks,’ from a lot of prospective candidates

It appears that many potential players are saying, “No thanks,” to the Red Sox.

Mike Hazen (D-Backs), Amiel Sawdaye (D-Backs), Brandon Gomes (Dodgers), Sam Fuld (Phillies), Derek Falvey (Twins), Michael Hill (Marlins), Jon Daniels (Rays, Rangers), Raquel Ferreira (Red Sox), and James Click (Blue Jays, Astros) are among the hardworking, well-researched baseball writers who have expressed no interest in taking over as the team’s next manager of baseball operations.

It raises the possibility that the Sox may be overestimating the value of this position.

As a result, I conducted some independent research and found that things are not as bad as they seem.

As it happens, there are a lot more people on the list who are not keen to succeed Chaim Bloom.

Additionally, Representative George Santos rejected the Sox.
Additionally, Matt Patricia, Mike Lindell, Ime Udoka, Adam Gase, and J.
C. T.
watkins, Sam Bankman-Fried, Ed Davis, Judge Richard Berman, Jimmy “Hotfingers” McNally, Keyser Soze, Crosby, Stills, Nash and Young, and Peter Gammons.

However, who would have thought that finding competent candidates to take over the baseball operations of the once-famous Boston Red Sox would be this difficult?

It seems like we hear about a new potential candidate who told the Sox, “I’m good,” almost every day.
Thank you.

When we first discovered that Theo Epstein was uninterested, it all began.
All right. It made logic. Theo desires to become an owner again in baseball.
Kennedy is Theo’s high school classmate, but he’s not going through that door to follow his orders.

After the Diamondbacks stormed through the playoffs, general manager and team president Hazen, a native of Weymouth who played for the Sox for 11 seasons (2006–16), signed a contract extension, eliminating himself from consideration for a move back to Boston.
The same is true for Arizona’s assistant general manager, Sawdaye.

It seemed like a split second: Falvey, the president of baseball operations for the Twins, Hill, the former president of baseball operations for the Marlins, Gomes, the general manager of the Dodgers, Fuld, the general manager of the Phillies, and Daniels, the senior adviser of the Rays and former Texas general manager, all declared they needed to wash their hair.

Only Bloominati and other card-carrying seamheads know who most of these people are.
That being said, it’s a little embarrassing that none of them would choose to interview with the Sox over staying at home.

Kennedy declared emphatically, “This is where you want to be if you want to run a baseball organization,” when he declared that he was going to look for Bloom’s replacement.
It’s Boston you want to be in. Because this is the place where it matters the most.
Thus, thank you but no thanks if you’re not up for that challenge.

It appears that a lot of people are rejecting the Sox.

Reputable MLB Network and New York Post reporter Joel Sherman stated on Tuesday, “The Red Sox have had trouble finding quality replacements for Bloom. There is a feeling in the league that ownership has stepped back more in favor of other business ventures and that manager Alex Cora is becoming more and more of a voice in hiring decisions.
That might have cooled the market.

Sherman’s information is consistent with an email I received from a longtime former general manager, who stated that there is “apparent word spreading throughout the baseball industry that the last two to hold that Red Sox position (Dave Dombrowski, Bloom) accomplished what they were asked to do… and yet were dismissed.”.

Many strong candidates remain available, such as Craig Breslow, the assistant general manager of the Cubs, Josh Byrnes, the former general manager of the Red Sox and current Dodger, Thad Levine, the general manager of the Twins, Neal Huntington, the former general manager of the Pirates, and Kim Ng, the highest-ranking female executive in baseball, who left the Marlins on Monday.

During Cora’s tenure as a Dodger from 2001 to 2004, Ng served as an assistant general manager.

Cora has a vote on this hiring.
Longstanding Sox executives Ferreira, Mike Groopman, Brian O’Halloran, Eddie Romero, and Ben Crockett also share this trait.
Remember that the Sox, with their management lacking in experience, are thinking of hiring two leaders rather than just one.
If you are in charge of an organization with 36 analytics experts and 59 vice presidents, you do this.
