I wish I was a genius so I could work towards having a position like this at 25 years old.

Maybe they just hired him so they wouldn't have to learn a new name.

Quote:
The Director of Baseball Operations – formerly Scott Nelson – wears a variety of hats, including the administrative portion of managing the 40-man roster (like, making sure all of the rules are followed properly), as well as handling other administrative tasks throughout the organization. I get the sense that it tends to be a lower-level front office position (as in, lower than a GM or an Assistant GM), but one that is definitely a part of the front office, if that makes sense. It seems to be a variable position, depending on how the guys at the top want to use your skills.

The position, it seems, is often filled by a young up-and-comer, at least if Theo Epstein’s experience is any guide – before taking over the Red Sox, Epstein made his bones as the Director of Baseball Operations for San Diego under Larry Lucchino.

I'd rather have 2 guys under 25, one of which is a top 5 player at his position (Castro) and another could well be a top 10 at his position after the year (Rizzo).

Because you haven't been taking shots whenever you can at the current regime?

He's just a repeat victim of selective (mis)interpretation.

How many threads are you going to spiral out of control before you realize it's not everyone else that's the problem?

I guess some of you will find all kinds of hidden messages in a simple sentence. It wasn't a knock on the FO, and I'm totally aware of the fact that we have Rizzo and Castro. It was a wish to add another young talented player to the core players.
