    Tom Ricketts will likely go to great lengths in finding the next general manager of the Chicago Cubs. After observing the “old-style” of Jim Hendry, Ricketts is searching for a young analytical general manager. Note that while Ricketts still has interest in Brian Cashman, Theo Epstein, and Andrew Friedman, the Cubs chairman is coming to the realization that neither of the “big 3″ will be leaving their current position anytime soon. Enter Rick Hahn, Josh Byrnes, and the newest candidate, assistant general manager of the Arizona Diamondbacks Jerry Dipoto.

    Hahn and Byrnes have been on the candidate list ever since it was announced that Hendry had been fired as Chicago Cubs general manager, Dipoto is the latest candidate to be connected to the Cubs’ position. Phil Rogers of the Chicago Tribune, who has surprisingly been all over the Cubs general manager search, suggests that Dipoto will likely be interviewed by Ricketts for the Cubs general manager position.

    I’m a fan of Jerry DiPoto.  So, I hope, if Cashman does leave the Yankees, DiPoto will be out there for consideration – and not already grabbed by the Cubbies.

      I remember at the end of Moneyball, Billy Beane turned down the chance to become Boston’s GM and Henry eventually hired Theo Epstein. I wouldn’t be surprised if the Cubs did the same. Heck, maybe the Cubs have a Theo Epstein of their own kicking around somewhere in their organization.
