Amiel Sawdaye May Spurn Sox For D'backs Or Twinkies
In our recent FenwayNation Poll, most readers wanted the Red Sox to pick an 'outside-the-box' GM—not one of the five main contenders being considered. This morning, it appears that one of those contenders—Amiel Sawdaye—has the inside track on the job if he wants it. Hall Of Fame reporter Peter Gammons says Sawdaye is "weighing" whether to accept the Sox job—or an assistant GM position under departed Mike Hazen in Arizona. There is also the wildcard—according to Gammons—of Sawdaye fleeing to the Twins is some capacity. Sawdaye (currently the VP of Amateur Scouting for the Red Sox) was chosen by only 13% of readers in our poll—but apparently has the eye of President of Baseball Operations Dave Dombrowski. Stay tuned!
