Bill Shaikin of the L.A. Times talked to Dodgers GM Ned Colletti, who said the Dodgers would grant permission for the Mariners to talk to executives Kim Ng and Logan White. The Mariners haven’t asked; most believe they’ll wait until the offseason to choose their long-term GM. On a related topic, news surfaced Thursday that the Padres would not allow the Mariners to talk to Kevin Towers.
Ng is the Dodgers’ Vice President and Assistant GM; she seems destined to become the game’s first female general manager. White is the team’s Assistant GM, Scouting. He has stocked the Dodgers with tons of young talent over the past several years. I’m sure Colletti wishes the best for his top execs. But you have to admit, both might become threats for the Dodger job down the road.
