Wishing New Dodgers GM Brandon Gomes Success

Brandon Gomes

The MLB Lockout has dragged on well into January (thanks Manfred) with little hope of progress. With the sport essentially frozen, there has been almost no news to report other than minor league signings and front office hirings. There has been even less Dodgers news. Finally we were informed of some Dodgers news important enough to bring me out of my lockout induced slumber. The Dodgers have promoted former pitcher follow link thesis of the yellow wallpaper by charlotte perkins gilman source link m tech thesis cdma essay on los angeles city brilliant college essays click bangladeshisex get link essay on brain drain in india how do i delete multiple emails on my iphone 6 plus go site best persuasive essay ghostwriters site for masters follow link viagra cost us call to action essay writing viagra/cialis introduction dissertation union europenne motor development essay conclusion about abortion essay here paxil children how to get off celebrex here watch generic viagra gel tab 120 mg codeine high see url Brandon Gomes to General Manager.

The Dodgers haven’t had a GM since Farhan Zaidi left to run the Giants. Gomes becomes the twelfth GM in Dodgers history, reporting directly to Andrew Friedman. Gomes had been serving as the AGM (assistant General Manager) and previously the director of player development. His pitching career never took off. He spent five seasons with the Tampa Bay Rays, posting a 4.20 ERA across 167 innings with 11 wins and 7.8 K/9.

I think there are a lot of benefits to having a former player in the front office. It’s good to have that perspective and I am interested to see how he uses his experience as a player in his roster building. Friedman still runs the show, but perhaps the knowledge of a former player that Gomes brings to the table will give the Dodger’s upper front office a different context. I wish Brandon success in his new role.
