Big news from the GM search last night, after I went to bed (of course). So let's catch you up, if you haven't already done so:
Thad Levine, Assistant GM for the Rangers, has declined the Astros' offer to interview for the GM position.
Drew Silva says:
With the Winter Meetings set to begin early next week, it might be time to begin bottom-feeding.
Yes, because that's exactly what the Astros need more of.
Also, Ken Rosenthal says that Rockies Assistant GM, Bill Geivett, is a serious candidate for the vacant GM position. Rosenthal:
Geivett, 48, has a wide range of experience. His previous jobs included assistant GM for the Dodgers, farm director for the Rockies and Expos, special assistant to the GM with the Rays and area scout and instructor with the Yankees.
We warned you about this...
