Former Dodgers Asst. GM To Be GM of Angels?

Via ESPN Los Angeles, Buster Olney is reporting former Dodger Assistant GM and current VP for baseball operations with MLB, Kim Ng will interview for the Angels current GM vacancy. 

ESPN LA's Mark Saxon recalls:

"In 2003, Eric Gagne went 55-for-55 in save opportunities and won all but four of the 32 votes for the National League Cy Young Award. It was probably the greatest season a relief pitcher has ever had.  The next winter, Kim Ng beat him in arbitration. Gagne earned $5 million in 2004 instead of the $8 million his agent, Scott Boras, argued for."


"Ng might be able to protect the Angels from themselves, to convince them not to make the one bad financial decision that could set the franchise back for years to come. If only they’d hired her earlier, maybe they wouldn’t have played last season under the crushing weight of more than $50 million in bad contract obligations."

Kim Ng in happier times

True to the Blue!
