Here it comes… the inevitable dismissal of general managers who in the eyes of the powers-that-be, just couldn’t cut the mustard.
Kevin Towers, general manager of the Padres was let go Friday. He was in his 14th season with the team.
And in the American League, J.P. Ricciardi was dismissed by the Toronto Blue Jays after eight years as general manager.
Perhaps this is just the New York Post stirring the rumor kettle but reports are the New York Mets are interested in either Towers or Ricciardi to work in the organization. Omar Minaya has reportedly called both to schedule a meeting.
