Giants give hint about what kind of GM they want
The San Francisco Giants are in the market for a new general manager, and they dropped a hint about what kind of candidate they are looking for.
The Giants announced on Monday that Senior Vice President and General Manager Bobby Evans will not return next season. With the club beginning the search for a replacement, team President and CEO Laurence Baer said the Giants will look for a “next-gen” general manager to take over.
Baer: We're looking for the 'next-gen' general manager. #SFGiants

That likely means Ned Colletti, who previously served as Giants general manager, will not be returning to San Francisco.
Ned Colletti is NOT going to be returning to the #SFGIants organization to replace Bobby Evans, I'm told.

The Giants are currently 72-85 and will miss the playoffs for the second consecutive season. That’s unacceptable for a team with their kind of payroll, fan attendance, and recent success. The early bet is for the next person tasked with building the team to be younger and familiar with new technology, stats, and analytics.
