Dbacks' president likes Kirk Gibson, covets Kevin Towers

Sep 7, 2010, 2:30 PM EDT

FanHouse’s Ed Price says that Diamondbacks President Derrick Hall likes interim manager Kirk Gibson and is a big fan of former Padres GM Kevin Towers for the Arizona Diamondbacks job.

How does that work, exactly? Isn’t it normally the case that new GMs like to bring in their own guy to manage a team?  We’ve not heard anything bad about Gibson, of course, but Kevin Towers seems like a guy who would be in demand for any GM job that opens up and could be hard to land. Would he agree to take over in Arizona if he couldn’t pick his manager?

    Come on Craig, you know a cardboard cut-out could manage a good team to a championship. Thats why Towers never bothered to fire Bochy (at least for a while). Managers win with good teams and lose with bad teams. Unless they are REALLY bad, it doesn’t matter.
