An actual update on the GM search

For the first time since the process began, we have an idea of who the Giants are actually looking at to fill the open General Manager job. I’ve avoided speculating about that too much because 1) I have no idea what the qualifications are for a GM in the age of Baseball Operations Presidents and 2) analytics-driven baseball has taught me that I don’t actually know what constitutes “qualified” for players and execs and the answer might be different for every team.

So, we’ll do what we’ve done with the manager search and try to divine the team’s plan based on the rumored candidates.
