Diamondbacks plan to hire GM by the end of the season

Aug 27, 2010, 8:41 AM EDT

Diamondbacks CEO Derrick Hall told Nick Piecoro of the Arizona Republic on Thursday that the team intends to have a permanent general manager in place by the end of the regular season.

“I’d like to have a GM in place before the season ends,” Hall said. “You
allow teams to get through the draft, get through the trade deadline
and then start the ball rolling (in the interview process).”

Hall has praised interim general manager Jerry DiPoto since he took over for Josh Byrnes in July, however he said he “owes it to the organization” to go through with the interview process. DiPoto will be considered for the full-time gig, among five to 10 candidates.

According to Piecoro, former Padres general manager Kevin Towers, Dodgers assistant general manager Logan White and Yankees vice president Darren Oppenheimer are some of the other rumored candidates.

    How about Omar Minaya? I know he’s Mexican, and Governor Frightmask might have to grant him a special visa to work in the Fourth Reich, but Arizona deserves him anyway. New York has suffered enough.
