According to FOXSPORTS.com, the Mariners are scanning the market for a new GM and may leaning towards hiring Dodgers long time assistant Kim Ng. While Mariners president Armstrong has not given up on the Mariners for being a contender next season, he believes an outside perspective needs to come in and guide the team. While there are certainly several other candidates, including former Twins GM Terry Ryan, Ng is close geographically and has helped the Dodgers build their team into a contender.
A source close to me who spoke with Mariners President Chuck Armstrong said in no way will this be a publicity stunt. They will hire the best candidate available and that may be Kim Ng, who has been with the Dodgers for the past seven years and the Yankees before that.
