A lot of big teams have been looking for new general managers this off-season, so it is understandable if the Baltimore Orioles’ search has flown a bit under the radar. But that hasn’t stopped the O’s from aiming high.
According to Roch Kubatko of MASNSports.com, the Orioles have requested permission to interview Andrew Friedman.
OK, OK…stop laughing. Yes, yes. We know. Friedman could just about have any job in Major League Baseball, so there is a better chance of the Rays signing Prince Fielder, than there is of Friedman leaving for the O’s.
But let’s be fair. The Orioles wouldn’t be doing their job if they didn’t at least call. Even UCF sends letters to the nation’s best high school football players.
