    Saw an article that said Lunhow is one of the favorites for the Angels GM job.

    CC, none of the LA papers are saying that. They name four candidates, but he is not one of them. Was the story you saw in the “Luhnow Times”? 😉

    Seriously, please share a link. I couldn’t find anything other than old blogger speculation about it. Thanks.

    What is in the news is that the Astros laid off Kevin Goldstein, who was one of Luhnow’s top assistants for the last eight years (well seven plus 2020). The former Baseball Prospectus employee was pro scouting director then special assistant. Goldstein’s name came up in the video scandal with one report he suggested the use of in-game cameras, but that surely was not proven or he would have lost his job a year ago. He spent one year under the new GM, James Click.

    This report says the Angels had 20 names, so maybe Luhnow was among them, though he was not named. I would still be amazed, though…

    Just to loop back around. Luhnow is not being mentioned anywhere that I can find.

    Do over time in Beantown… In the old end of day Friday slot, the best time for controversial news…

    Now the reason for the TV interview is clear. Luhnow laid out his case ahead of filing a lawsuit that he was wrongfully fired and cheated out of millions in income. Looks like he waited to file until the suspensions were over and Hinch wss re-hired, making it clear that Luhnow is the odd man out.

    Wow! I had no idea that a GM could get a contract for himself for $22M-$31M. Good luck to Luhnow in winning his lawsuit. I think that the head of an organization is liable because of the ‘knew, or should have known’ argument that the lawyers made up for themselves to use at times like this.

    Of course, Crane and Manfred discussed the penalties ahead of time. Manfred works for the owners, after all, not the other way around.

    A possible spin…

    My guess is that this gets settled quietly, particularly if it would go to court. My guess is that there is a lot of dirty laundry at the bottom of the basket
