"So kristen eck. We've got to start the story in january of this year at dan campbell's introductory press conference. I wanted this job bad. Because i felt like i knew this community i played here all right on. Everything's seemingly normal and then things get a bit more interesting. I can sit up here and give you coach. Speak all day long. I can give you You know. Hey we're gonna win this many game. I can't that none of that matters in you. Guys don't want to hear it anyway. You've had enough of that shit.

What was your reaction to this. I mean i think like everyone else. I was sort of just in shock for a few minutes. Just trying to figure out where he was going with everything but as we'll talk about. I'm sure that was very much dan campbell. I think the people who know him weren't all that surprised to hear that speech from him. It was funny to hear you know brad. Homes in new. General manager was introduced at the same time and he said several times since. I'm glad i got to go first. Because i don't think i could follow that up but i i think that that's you know that's what you get from dan campbell and i think that's what they wanted from dan campbell. They wanted some energy and some authenticity. And i think the fan base really responded to it. I don't know how the players necessarily took it or people in the general public but for this particular fan base. I think it went over pretty well. Neko ear thoughts when you heard it a big pro wrestling fan l. admission here and that's what that was a professional wrestling promo is having talked to him since talking all these guys for the story like he didn't planet it wasn't scripted. It was something that he said and you can kind of tell because he when he said the kneecaps thing he did it like exclaim it he just sort of set it like the most nonchalantly normal way is like to. We're going to play when your kneecaps off. And then he just kept going to the next point. It's like this is just what this guy. This is off the cuff. You could kind tell. And i think that there was a lot of authenticity with that

Why Would Jaguars Sign Tim Tebow?
"We are back final hour. It's been a fun show. We appreciate you being here. A lot of conversation with my Mike smith earlier. We also talked to dennis dodd. Another conversation predictably has been tim. Tebow we've given you a lot of reaction on that in the mike cannon bom from espn former gm jets dolphins. He's been here a couple of times. He had this to say earlier today. On keyshawn jay will and zubin about understanding the signing. I don't like it. I just don't see the upside in this move. He's thirty four years old. He would be a backup. I just don't know of thirty four year old players that can come in and be back place special teams and you're taking away a roster spot from hopefully a young developmental player that could grow with a young nucleus obviously led by trevor lawrence. And to me this is probably through the lens of urban. Meyer saying a decade. And a half ago tim tiba was the most competitive guy i've ever been around and he can help set the culture. If i was in that building what i would be pushing back saying coach. That may be true but in the nfl as you well know. Players needs to be led by players. They believed can take them to where they wanna go and as a backup tight end. I just don't think tim tebow would have that same credibility as he wants dave when he was the starting quarterback in florida. He also questioned whether tibo could even makes a team. I just don't see how he makes the team or urban and he's a really good coach he he's been historically great college but i just don't know he has to earn a spot and he's given a spot. That's gonna cause a big problem because players weren't have a chance to win and again to me just putting on my lens of a general manager and roster construction if you're not a starter in the nfl with only forty six players dressing you have to play special teams so my question. is tim. tibor thirty four years old going to cover cover kicks that remains to be seen. Now if he doesn't earn it does a totally different discussion. But i don't think you could sign him and say hey. He definitely has a spot on this team.

Who Will Pick Kyle Pitts in Thursday's NFL Draft?
"All right. Let's have fun here with. Kyle pits blank will select kyle pits right. I think it's the falcons. I mean friscos. Been talking about this for some time. He doesn't think that the falcons are gonna take a quarterback he thinks arthur blank is all in on on matt ryan for another year to have a new coach and the new general manager. And here's the thing like if you trade down four. And i suspect it'll be teams interested in trading up to four to get whether it's trae lance macaroni justin fields. If you're the falcons if you move down if you move down you're not getting cockpits. That's just the end the conversation because either the bengals. The dolphins entertainment five or six and presumably. You're not trading with those teams already have quarterbacks. So that's the math you're doing and if you're not getting likely to march as we saw a report on monday for peter king that maybe julio jones could be moved with which seems crazy what they need a cap space Could you turn down for. Cornerback if the falcons you could but again what gives you more value in terms of making that football team better. I think it's how pet. So if i'm the falcons and i'm not taking justin feels matteo's trae lands i'm sampling. Taking cup pits. Janssen the blank blank. We'll take pets. I think it's it's atlanta. But i also be surprised if the team traded up with the falcons maybe even take pits like ryan saying you know the train up to the quarterback but you know teams fall in love your dallas. You know thousand the four but you know if a team really loves him that much and it's hard not to love that much than you could see. Maybe a team being overly aggressive. I think it was on On the nfl network this morning on good morning football there was a segment that they do with the giants traded up. You know. I don't know who is doing the job. Esau just a screen grab of it on twitter but the giants gave their first or second ebony ingram and something else to move up to four to get pits and it was you know something that on paper make some sense but you know. Obviously something is not likely to happen but still i would say it's four is where he goes. But the falcons do make some sense especially they decided we want from me jonesing. Another playmaker

"Qr code getting producers to a place where they can see that. The time has come is a very challenging thorny process that requires. Unfortunately someone who's dispassionate about. It requires a lot of patience and so i can see how that process michael's to try to get produce there as quickly as possible because again we have humans on the line right. If you post a closing notice with one week's notice something went wrong. You probably saw that coming. And i'm not saying there could be so many failures. There was it at the general manager. Couldn't get the producer to that. Place was the general manager not engaging with those hard conversations so much easier not to have hard conversations not to tell someone that their baby is not working the way they want it by whenever i see a closing notice with one week's notice there's a story there and it's generally not a good one. I love that answer just from my personal experience. I've seen a lot of company. Managers then grow to become general managers and then maybe not in that. Same trajectory but parallel. Even a lot of general manager is go on to become producers and so. I'm curious if the if if you've also seen that trend and then be is it because the they're they're working very closely with that with with those people that exposure in that education kind of a it makes sense to gradually move. Is there any reason why that tends to be the case. Where company managers go to t t to be gm's gm's go to be producers so many reasons. How much time do you all right. So let me try to budgets like head view If you want to be a commercial producer. I think there's no better job in the world for you than a company manager. You are literally cutting checks. You're seeing where every penny is going and you can really start to learn. Oh like this was a great. I'm glad that producer decided to spend ten thousand dollars a week on this. I can see that. That's helping in the box office. Or i can see that. The physical therapy is is keeping the cast happy backstage. I can see how the dollars and cents or having an impact on the show company manager. You've got a front row seat to that. Is the best seat in the house. So that's why. I think many company managers can become producers. Or if you want to be a producer..

"I think there are voices that have stories to tell that are not getting the opportunity to tell those stories and it makes me sad for what gets on a broadway stage. Yeah i would agree with that and a lot of the show sorry. A lot of those theaters are also run by nonprofits to so they're automatically taken out of the equation so there's even less than forty one for a commercial production. Actually come in and try and make way for themselves and of course the long running hits. That are not going anywhere anytime soon. It's crazy to think that maybe there's only twenty between and look you know to be fair. You know the long running hits are great for the industry right. I mean people come to new york. They come to broadway. Because of the long running shows they have no ran on their trip. Yes exactly so. It's it's not totally binary. Oh let's get rid of the long running shows. But i think it is pretty clear. What's i think. Really wonderful right now. About the the reckoning that is happening a all over the country but you know in our industry as well is that we're really coming. We have to grapple with fact that there are people out there were stories. And they still can't get broadway buildings and that's a problem and we really have to figure out how to address that wondering what are some of the responsibilities you have as a general manager wants to show his opened. And how does that alter things and you know as you keep going with the show. That's long running. Especially like rock of ages has been out for quite a while. Yes so. I think. Go back to our startup metaphor. It's you know we are before. Production opens. We are trying to get a start up off the ground every single higher every single contract we have to staff up. We have to get ready. We have to build the sets bill. The costumes get it into the theater. Opened on a budget advertise the show market the show..

"You know my firm was a startup for a while until we weren't and then my firm helps other start-up startup so was very meta. How are you looking to diversify your client roster. What i always tell potential clients when they're choosing general manager and i think the same works in reverse when the general manager is deciding whether to take on a certain client is doesn't matter general manager you hire for all pretty competent. We're all gonna come to pretty much the same budget. The contracts are all going to look pretty much the same. There's so much that standard. We'd like to think every time we direct or do a new director contract. We're reinventing the wheel and you know that a couple of loyalty points here. They are that one manager is going to do better than the other. It's all going to land in roughly the same place. It's really about who you wanna work with at the end of the day And especially things we're all reevaluating. Our lives during the shutdown. I think we're all sort of thinking you know. Who is the person. I want by my side. Who are the clients. We wanna take on And the same is true for the people who want to hire us i. The person is my staff the people that you want to guide you and it's just about fit at the end of the day speaking of staff. So when did i many. How many back to mike. How many people do you have working for you. And when did you feel. It was right to build your team. Yeah you know. There's that expression that circulates around startup culture higher when it hurts. I think that's pretty apt. I always hired right before. I was fully comfortable hiring. I could sort of see that we were all getting a little bogged down You know look the. The company started in my apartment on the upper west side living room. We slowly built out the team as we were getting more clients. As i could tell that you know somebody on the staff was getting overworked or needed a little bit more relief or interestingly if somebody had a skill set that i thought you know that's something that this person should really focus on making up a little bit. You know accounting. This person can really walk our clients through the accounting side of the work. This person's really good at budgeting. This person was really good at contracting and negotiations But yeah i mean we had. I think about twelve to fifteen people depending on how you're counting right before the shutdown now. We're we're a little bit all disbursed sort of waiting for the world to come back on but yeah when it from my living room to full staff in times square so then when you when you do get hired for a production what are the next steps in building budget so i always like to say that some people come to us with a budget number in mind and some people come to us with the vision for the production. I and so a budget can actually start in one of those two places but a kind of has to start from one of the. So what do i mean by that. Let's say you you want to produce. Titanic the musical on broadway and you come into manual. Like i daniel. I wanted to titanic. It's got a star denzel washington. Tom cruise viola davis.

"general manager" Discussed on Clock Dodgers Podcast - Motivation | Fantasy Football | Comedy | Pop Culture
"Is russell wilson. There has been episodes that he did. You know podcast and shows and Brady henderson wrote an article. Espn kinda summarize and everything. So we're gonna kinda jump around. Actually brady's article and some of the things that you know. Russell wilson has said recently It's interesting stuff. And i feel like i wanna talk about it with you guys. I want to. I definitely want your opinions on this one. This is a an interesting scenario of of sorts So first of all russell. Wilson says that you know in a very frustrated fashion that he's being hit way too many times By head i mean. He's being sacked too many times as sacks almost four hundred times is not you know it's not good enough now. Anyone who knows anything about russell wilson. The seahawks knows that while there. Are you know there's always room for improvement deficiencies on any position on team Th the seahawks definitely can improve in this position on the offense align to help russell wilson and fantasy terms. I mean we've been happy with russell. Wilson been one of the best quarterbacks in the league. No question about it. that's fantasy or not fantasy on honestly He's one of the best quarterback in league. He has great weapons In metcalfe and lock it running back situation while you know has been a little bit of a you know over. The years has been kinda up and down. But you know it's always seems like it stabilized enough where you're getting production. As long as the guy is healthy the sack situation and the offense align situation it kind of goes two ways because and russell admitted this right like part of it is often of line. Right and the other part is russell. Wilson like russell. Wilson is his own worst enemy in terms of being sacked. Because we all know. Russell wilson can hold onto the ball for way too long. You know trying to extend tinos thing plays. This is part of his his his talent his ability as the you know the the the Ability to do this right because not every night quarterback in you know run around and extend plays in and see things open up while he's running around. Not every quarterback has cable. That's a while he has this ability to do so. It also is a you know a gift and a curse of sorts In some way so sure. This hawks have to fix this But also russell has to fix his own issues and he had. He admitted this in the article. He said Here because dan patrick actually kind of excuse me dan. Patrick actually pressed him on this a little bit about you know Wilson thirty two acknowledges as much. He was asked by patrick about his sack total. He said i think that. Sometimes you hold onto it a little bit. Just because you're looking for that plane you find it but also so many of those times it turns into touchdowns to But you never wanna be sacked that many times four hundred times basically is way too many four hundred too many so i think that's a big thing we've gotta fix that's got that's got to be fixed and has to be at the end of the day because my goal is to play ten to fifteen more years fifteen tennessee more years. He's he's he and brady man. Let's just be honest. Every quarterback is the embraer right. Now like shit. I played on forty five. So yeah i mean if you wanna play a forty five. You can't be out here getting killed on a weekly basis. So i'm glad the in this situation. He acknowledged that he has to accept blame here. You know he. Essays accept responsibility is a better word Because you can't blame all this on the seahawks just obviously not just their fault The other part of this conversation. That i thought was more interested in something. I really want. Everyone else's input on is that russell wilson was said that you know. He cited brady paid manager. Breeze other top quarterbacks who who have or have had the kind of input in personnel decisions that he desires he says. I want to be able to be involved because at the end of the day. Is your legacy. It's your team's legacy is the guys you get to go into the huddle with at the end of the day. Those guys you've got to trust when you think about one of the reasons why it's how it tampa was. Because he felt like he could trust those guys and coach. Bruce arians was going to give him the opportunity. You think about guys like lebron james. He was able to be around great players that he could trust. I think for me anytime you bring free agency or other players. You want the best players guys who love the game guys who want to be part of that and as a player you kind of know that you get to be around pro bowls you get to see these kind of guys and you get to the huddle with lime in the receivers where you get to be around offensive guy so you kind of build that over time and you get to see who can really play as a player you really know. I think that the relationship is really key. I think that relationship is really key and dialogue especially being a veteran player. That dialogue is really important. This is interesting. This is interesting comment from russell wilson. Right now He also was asked if he's involved in conversations now for personnel personality. Said not as much as much as he wants to be Do you think it would help. If he's more involved. This is so this is really interesting right. Every player you would think would want to be more involved in personnel decisions because every player thinks they know the right call. Somebody probably not every player. I won't say that some players are axes questions. They say it's not my decision right. That's a team decision. That's general managers decision as a coach decisions above my pay grade. However the answer it abso-. I'm sure some of these guys want no part of it but when you have a quarterback you guys like russell wilson. He really wants to be more involved. Which kind of like man. Okay how involved. You let a guy like russell wilson. Being this. he's talking about guys. He goes to the pro bowl with and you know he plays with them in the huddle like i wrestle. We can't bring in every pro bowler number one to the seahawks number two. Don't you think if a player players in the pro bowl players really good. The seahawks management knows already at the management isn't bringing him bad players on purpose So i think more so. He wants to like when they bring in players to talk to them. He wants to be like he wants. His opinion axed he wants. What do you think about this guy. Russell what do you think russell you play with him at the pro bowl. Russell how do you feel about them. You know what will how do you think he misses. What our team. He just wants to feel important Feel a part of the decision. Making and i'm curious what the clock doubters out. There think about this. Because i'm sure there's some of you who feel like. Hey four players should play football and general managers and coaches and front office should sign players and is the players jobs to make you work. You know to build that camaraderie to build that chemistry on trust each other. Russell wasn't almost makes it feel like he doesn't trust players on his team. I i don't like some of the wording that he used there. It's almost like you know. Hey tom brady is the trust all his players. I don't get to trust mind. That's almost how it comes off. If i was seahawk fan. I'd be a little annoyed with it. You know but overall i get he just wants to be more involved. He wants his hands on things This way if things go bad he can sort of blamed himself for Rather than just defer that blame to other people i also think is interesting The we all see russell. Wilson was at the super bowl they showed him and his wife sierra talking to roger goodell and so he was also asked about Oh actually i. Before we do that he was asked about whether he thinks the seahawks have a about a potential trade and they trade him and if teams have called about him he said that he thinks you know teams have definitely called about him He believes that's just kind of part of the process for players that produce on a weekly basis like he does which goes back to the conversation that we had about. Derek carr and how teams calling about your quarterback is nothing odd. It's nothing crazy It's nothing weird for you to take those calls and the team says even though you know you're going to say no to basically That's what the seahawks are doing. This with every team is doing so russell. Wilson is aware that he understands that He says you know him. Being traded as a decision for them not for him which is funny because he decided he wanted a more say though so almost wonder what he was saying. He was axed but.
"general manager" Discussed on KTKR 760AM
"Everybody gets out. Kick the coverage with Clay Travis. You know that I have argued for a long time that Jim Harbaugh is the most overrated coach in the history of college football. But the challenge in general here I don't know what's going to happen with Michigan and how this Jim Harbaugh situation is going to come out because I don't think that there are great options for Michigan to replace Jim Harbaugh. But I think the likelihood is that he is going to make a make a choice basically make a decision. Walk away and go back to the NFL. And if that ends up happening, then how exactly does Michigan bounced back from the guy that they thought was gonna be there Football savior and go find someone new. I just I don't know how that process is going to play itself out. I just think it's going to be super super difficult for Michigan Going forward. It's out kicked that coverage with Clay. Travis 6 A.m. eastern 3 A.m. Pacific on Fox Sports Radio. This is the odd couple. With Chris Broussard and Rob Parker. The Miami Marlins hired Kim hang as their new general manager, and she becomes the first female general manager in any of the three major American sports football, basketball and baseball So well, four major North American hockey to all four.

"We drove the streets together that was dead. Gratifying to be with him as a dear friend and being able to show somebody your hometown and stuff is really cool. And you know, I continue to keep up with George's some play The Georgetown the last month and just finishing up wonderful people his family's second to none. So it's good. You're you already have great audience. You gotta far better guess than I have in Georgia. He's a wonderful person. It's such a fun time to have have in mind a lot of a lot of good jokes to start the interview actually tried to say hi in Romanian, and I butchered in a little bit and he he really got a kick out of that and it was off a phone conversation. Yep. We speak Greek to you. So I told him I was Greek eats. He tried a little bit that that was fun. I mean it was able to we went to go both ways where I messed up remaining. He messed up the Greek a little bit so watch he both off you have awesome. So just to wrap up. I just want to ask you one more question about being a general manager to it's it's the highest position in in All In All Pro Sports. It's something that young kids are just look up to and say I want to do that one day and everyone thinks that everyone wants that but they don't really know where the where the steps aren't even start. Even if they even even looked to get into that spot. We we just want. I know I wish you could learn so much from that. But what's your advice to someone now, whether it's a college student or someone that's got out of college that's thinking about doing that one day. I think dream big and pursue your dreams. You have to understand there's limitations people that tell me they want to do what I do. I say well you want to do what I do. You have to do what I did. That's been a lot of years. Unfortunately. I have a very blessed to have a fantastic family by spend a lot of time away from them chasing this dream and getting to that and it's not all that your family life are the most important thing but it takes a lot of hours away from your family. It takes an awful lot of immersion into the basketball world and really going to games that to give birth to practice is the amount of time you spend communicating with players networking with people, you know agents owners everyone at the NBA everyone around the globe. It's such a it's a very tight-knit Network. It's basically basketball is a very small tail. So if you're going to put your foot in there, you have to put your best foot forward. You got to understand all your actions are going to speak for you not your words. So if you're somebody that can bring something to the table and help make an organization better everyone that sits in the chair. I sit in a special We're all selfish. We want with the best people working for us. So what do you do? What can you bring to the Wizards to make us the best possible team.

"Of course anything can happen and especially when you have the right mix of young Talent just you can you really take a team by surprise? So you guys have now on rookie and Rehab camera who's really developing into a real nice young player. Obviously drafting him expectations will have a super high and he's and he's met those since then. What are you kind of your outlook on the future form? We we want to continue to see him extend his range offensive and become a much better Defender defensively. I think he's a complete player he's of role player that we think is a star in his rule, but we think he's got a bright future and I can guard multiple positions can play multiple positions and that's kind of the key for us. We like to play really fast and we want people that can Ruiz case. He can pick it off the glass take it all the way up to cross make a play get to the room. We very satisfied with the shooting very satisfied with his ability to get to the free-throw line like to see em extenders range. Be more reliable from the three but dead. He's a fantastic Prospect for us. And then we're really excited to have them with us. Of course and then with all these young players, obviously it comes to the decision and as the GM to do we buckle down and concentrate on growing this young Talent or or other moves we can make through agency got to to get like the team that can win right now that we that we know I'm going to a ceasing I can do that. What's that kind of decision like for you whether when it's coming up with what what kind of staged a team is in especially now that you've tracked into that role? What does that look like? Well my job as a general manager of the caretaker of this team for our ownership group. And so with that challenge you you must be ready to do whatever it takes to make your team better at any time patience is a very big key. I actually have braces that where it says patience on each hand and you gotta look down with young flash. It takes time for young players to become very good players, but we've experienced that with ja wall with Bradley Beal. We saw what investing in them and staying patient over the years that yielded birth. All Star Games with John to grab did we feel bad as it all NBA player and definitely, you know, the product is sitting in front of you wasn't the one that we had their first year at this time and you have to be patient. But you also have to know what good deals are that are out there and they helps your team. You always gotta execute to make your team better, but we really dead in in one year's time. We we basically reset our roster from our last time we were in the play-offs we lost in six games to Toronto and there's two players left from that team. So in this past season, we had eleven really thirteen new players the ad in the trades as well. So it takes time but all of a sudden time moves you have a new team staring me in the face from where you thought your core nucleus was four years ago was only two guys left and then it tells you the NBA moves on Of course the NBA is a business and it moves at a million miles an hour. It's super hard to kind of keep all that into play..

"general manager" Discussed on KNBR The Sports Leader
"I says general manager here you know that the trade with the horse this is a difficult part of this business I don't think you can really prepare yourself when you move from a player bodies everything to us in the discussions with him that that wasn't going to along with you that our team together as we wanted to do so the colts entered the picture obviously with okay but in the upper house the way that the opportunity to sign other guys we were able to get something done yeah I think really what was going to hinge on here is the versatility they they made their selection and so we're gonna keep Erik Armstead over deforrest Buckner and you had to make that decision now because every car said was a free agent so I understand anybody thinks but there was the better player I think he was the better player but the business decision indicated that you had to make a call on that this season in doing so in recouping a thirteen think I really do think John Lynch has set himself up to be much more wide open heading into this draft any otherwise would have banned let's get to this one here because last year again I think John Lynch I do think it's a strength of his that he's aggressive I'd rather have a GM be aggressive and sit back and hope that something falls to your weight for for something to fall into your lap this case is there's a player I want there's a pic I want let's not wait around and and and ourselves into a corner let's go get the player or the the ticket's gonna give us that versatility so last year they go in the movie for the move their number two overall skews me their second round pick last year to get D. Ford which I think on paper everybody viewed is a huge asset impactful they bring him in and he would have been any played more right we just need him on the field with a little bit more health and that's the hang up on this guy is hot he's frequently injured and Mrs Clinton they traded multiple mid round picks in the in the in the what Matt barrows likes to call the guts of the draft the third knows fourth rounders for Emmanuel Sanders who obviously impactful I don't know where the Niners are without centers the back end of the season to win that saints game without a manual says probably not which means that you're not hosting playoff games at Levi's all through December and January right so I I I think John would you did a good job leading up to this but you gotta wonder do you regret any of that at this point now that Sanders is gone doctors don D. four is now potentially on the trading block you saying do you regret any of that moving some of those pics just to get players in that may have helped you get to the Super Bowl but I think her second round pick last year was pretty good or he didn't play as much as we wanted it to allow for that I share what I do know is when he was on there we were we changed that absolutely not I don't think the.
"general manager" Discussed on Giants Splash
"And fun. Henry showman back here with giants General Manager Pitcher Scott Harris who was just saying that? Sometimes you have to create opportunity for younger players At the expense of some familiar names. And I'm not going to ask you about any specific player player Because that wouldn't be fair and you wouldn't answer it anyway but I mean we. There are some players on the in the organization on the team. That are very familiar. They have a a good pedigrees and You know they have big contracts and Do you think there's any chance or have been any talk at all about maybe Moving some of those guys to not only create opportunity but also to bring some younger players into the system. Not Right now I would say if you you if you talk to the the guys that you're looting to A think almost to a man they they think that The two thousand nineteen virgins of of themselves are not the best That they can offer and they're working extremely hard this offseason to make sure that they come into camp In shape gave and ready to go and and and ready to continue to build to build on very decorated resumes in San Francisco. And we think that that we didn't going to I think there there's a A belief in inside these walls that we need a healthy mix between veterans and young players Because we think those those two demographics tend to push push each other and they tend to Help each other Perform at a higher level night in and out So I don't think so right now. I think we're excited to bring back a core veteran leaders here that are that are going to help some of the young players assimilate to the big leagues quickly But also who are gonNA perform in their own right Because they've done a year in and year out and expecting them to two thousand twenty. Okay I think that maybe the front office has a little bit more faith than than a lot of the fans that you're really gonNA see A big turnaround. And let's be honest. Buster Posey's Brandon Crawford Two of the two of the bigger names. You guys feel that they're still something left in those guys and belt and Longoria etc absolutely and they're working very hard to prove the doubters wrong. This offseason an Internet ship. Okay Just a few more minutes with giant general manager. Scott Harris a one name we haven't mentioned yet is Madison Bumgarner This is a very complex issue that predates predates you by by many years but You know you you guys offered Reportedly from what we've learned a four year contract. That was a little bit more money per a year than what he got from the diamondbacks who gave him a fifth year There are all sorts of opinions out there. He didn't WanNA come back You guys really wanted to move on from him You know you guys were happy to finish in second place on this one And so on and so forth the best way you can. Could you please tell us what what happened with Madison Bumgarner and why he's not a giant anymore. Yeah first of all I want to say. A lot is in had an incomparable eleven year. Run with the giants I mean in in two thousand fourteen alone He almost single-handedly for that team is back And lifted this organization to new heights and he also made his mark on on so many Current and former giants players coaches executives In this organization and We're extremely grateful for all of his contributions I put out a statement When he signed with the dog We really we really were really so appreciative. Of what. He's done here. I think. Seen Him in a diamondback uniform This this spring and and next season will be an adjustment for all of us in San Francisco. It's always an adjustment with the amount of player turnover in modern baseball. And and we really understand that As for the signing and to respond more directly to your question It has been well reported that we you're actively engaged refused representatives And we made him as a substantial offer to stance efforts Cisco But at the end of the day Madison us in his family is representatives. They all evaluated every opportunity that was in front of the they evaluated every offer in front of them And they decided to do what's best for for Madison and first family and that was to blaze a new path and a new organization in a new the city that he is very comfortable in And Madison has worked extremely hard over the last eleven years to get to this point He has worked extremely hard. You become a free agent and as a free agent. He's earned the right to decide where he wants to play. And we have to respect that as an organization However I will say fun and I have a responsibility to this organization and to the city To continue to build what we believe is a bright future in San Francisco. There's there's a lot of change happening in this organization and would that change we. We believe that there's some exciting things happening under the hood here and attend fans and And those default organization are are going to start to get to see those exciting things that are happening and and I think that's going to translate into the real value and and real winning at the level in computer and so we we appreciate everything. Madison has done for this organization and But I but we have to. We have to move towards Our our commitment to this organization and Espresso bullish. We are on the future. That we're actively shaping right now okay As promised I wanted to just As we close here ask you a couple of questions about your job itself. I mean you are a Bay area native you uh I believe. We're born in Redwood city. Released grew up in Redwood City. Your parents were both physicians in the area. What is it been like for you after two months to to sort of come back here in this kind of high visibility position where I mean the fans who follow the team your friends? Everybody who didn't know especially those who didn't no you Now see you in the near the top of the giants front office adjustment. That's for sure In in these jobs You Sometimes underestimate the exposure of of You Know News and new hires and DOC. I think I got something like six hundred text messages the the day I took the job and On on what handed is overwhelming on the other hand and It's it. It's very rewarding sense of accomplishment in that Reminds you of how many people you you've gotten to know over the years. How many people have helped shape you into the person you are today? I will also say that I am so enjoying being back in San Francisco. I'm so enjoying not having to deal with a real winter I'm enjoying Being able to take my parents out to dinner on on ran weeknights. The haven't really had that opportunity since I was in high school. Because I haven't really been back here so it is really privileged to be here and I'm just really excited for season star and and start building a really bright future here in San Francisco. Have you been excited to hear Ticket requests from friends has had actually happened. That has not started started yet. But I'm I'm sure it will It's I don't think it can be more difficult than game seven of the world series And two hundred sixty after one hundred and eight years in Chicago so I feel like I'm a grizzled veteran on the on the ticket front but Be Happy to accommodate as many as I can. Okay and just the last question Now that you've been in the Front Office for a couple of months and you've worked with a far Han and and some of the other people in the front office and as well as manager gave Kappler a do any impressions anything that surprise you at all anything that sort of strikes you. I guess what I was struck by. How quickly fawn gave an I started forging working relationships how quickly we move past kind of the pleasantries and started challenge each other about the players and challenging each other on our visions for the future of the giants I mean we. We send each other offices for several hours every day. Talking about layers talking about you know how to Deploy our players in the best position to succeed and then when we leave it we just switched to a tax chain or or phone calls and I think people outside the industry forget. How much work it takes next to build a roster and how closely you have to work with people to build a roster and so Any apprehension I had about you know working with a new group of of of people here with with our handicap and and our baseball OPS staff is already gone and I think that's much quicker than I expected here And Yeah I think that's probably a good thing for the organization Lord. Okay well it seems like There's a staff in place in the front office. There's a staff in place now on the field The roster is still a little fluid. We'll we'll see what happens in the next few weeks as we head down to Scottsdale I just want to thank you again and we hope to have you on One Spring Training begins and thereafter.
"general manager" Discussed on Giants Splash
"Alone and welcome to the giants Flash. I'm Henry Shulman the chronicles beat reporter and for the first time we welcome giants general manager Scott Harris with less than a month to go before spring training in two months since Hans. -IETY heart higher Scott from the cubs. You seem like a good time to catch you up and we even have some news on a new starting pitcher How Scott and walk into the splash by the way? Thanks for having me honest I Yeah you should have more podcast. 'cause we we announce things every time you have Scott on your pocket that's right this is called metrics. It's one one for one hundred percent even and even thirty three percent will get you into the hall of fame. He'll be on tomorrow too. Yeah exactly and then we'll have the CASTANOS Prescott never mind scratch that I do want to ask a little bit about just your Your return to San Francisco and and the job but I mean we're not supposed to bury the lead you guys did sign left handed ended starter drew smiley to a one year contract Just before we got on the phone record this podcast. He was a very good pitcher with the Detroit. Tigers when when he first came up even pitched a few innings in the world series against the giants in two thousand twelve was involved in a pre in a trade with David price and then he had elbow trouble of. Of course you had Tommy John so I guess the question is What is it that you saw about Smiley Including what gave Kappler saw about him last year with the phillies. That makes you thank thank. You can contribute this year yet. We've been working on Trying to sign drew For several weeks now and We're excited to to finally get it done and and bake him a giant As you alluded to Drew was one of the more promising young. Left starters in the game Just a few years ago Especially when he was in Tampa Bay as a twenty five year old and We really took notice In in my prior job in Chicago I'll go of drew success and Unfortunately he succumbs to Tommy John Surgery in July of two thousand seventeen and has sort of our in struggling to get healthy Since then and last year when he was with Texas in Philly he WHO's battling through several injuries Including in a in ankle injury impeded his ability to drive off the rubber But in the second half of last year he started healthy Especially when he was in Philadelphia via and ended up strike now twenty six percent of hitters during his time in Philadelphia. We really like about him. Four pitch mix with weapons to attack both right handed hitters and left handed hitters and now We we believe he's fully healthy He's now in that in that sweet spot being two years removed from Tommy John Surgery and and we believe that the talent Plus the health. Make him an intriguing. Buy Low Left Anna Starter for us I also I will note. He has a past history with with both cap and me He was with cabin in Philly in the second half of last year and and we actually signed him with the cubs jobs right after he He had Tommy John and I think our relationship with drew minutes more comfortable Because we knew the character German. We knew his commitment to doing everything he can possibly do to to bring out the best version of themselves on the mound comfortable with with makeup and the person stand up and and we think he is Primed have had a big year for us in two thousand twenty and with the addition of Gausman as well pronouncing announcing his name right I it it's a little competition in camp. which is probably a good thing since you have a lot of young guys that you don't just necessarily want to have to hand jobs to is that right right and the days when you could just run out five starters For six months are are long gone. very few if any team are are able to get through a whole season even with six starters So we we were focused This off season on on trying to build some starting depth As as well as upside and and I think think think the bones of our rotation are in place right now and we're excited to to watch these guys compete spring training good word bones of the rotation bones of the roster You Know I. I think this is the second year. Oh you weren't here in in far Hans Zaidi's first off season are this. Is this your first year but this is the second year in a row that in the off off season the giants have not really made a huge splash In both the free agency and trade market I think fans saw what happened last year with drew pomeranz dance with the giant. Sign them as a Bilo possible. High reward guy ended up flipping him For pretty good young player but you know this has not been an off season where you've gone out and gotten you know any any real big name. Help for say the outfield which was something that far. Han said that he was going to try to do. I'm wondering first of all. Let me just ask this into parts Do you feel now. It's the front office. Feel that the the people you have on the forty man roster and a non roster invites right now if this is the group you're going to get to Start Spring training with next month or is there still more. That's possible including maybe Getting an outfielder with a little bit more name recognition. I don't think this is the The final group group that we're GONNA head to spring training with Far On and I and our staffs are actively working on a few different upgrades We we're working really hard to add to our rotation in pleased that we're able to do that today. We withdrew Smiley We're also working hard as empower and balance to our offense. Both both in the field and the outfield We're we're definitely not done. And we're constantly scouring all available markets to find Specifically that power imbalance in to our offense but also other upgrades And I will also note as as you saw with far last year The start of spring training is. I'm not a a deadline where you have to produce a fully baked roster We're GONNA continue to look for upgrades during spring training and during during the season But I don't think as as we sit here on January sixteenth that this is You know the final group that that you're going to Scottsdale And then On opening day okay and You know given that the market the free agent market has moved faster this year a lot faster than last year. Oddly enough Except for the outfield Argued think it's more likely that if you were able to get power. Be at the Infield or outfield that it would be more likely via a trade than free agency. Yeah sometimes sometimes there's there's an inverse relationship Between activity and free agency and activity on the trade front and I think now that a substantial portion of the talent on In in agency is is locked up with with different teams there has been more Trade activity Or at least more trade discussions and out there We're we're talking to every team At least weekly now And so there's potential for us to make additions trade as well L. is free agency We we just have to wait and see What opportunities are available to us? Okay now I think that a lot of the fans Our understanding standing now after Farhan has been in office As president of baseball operations now for more than a year kind of understanding what the giants are trying to do to build a winner from the ground up and also Over time not just a you know a one and done but I think there are a lot of folks who still wonder if you guys are are willing to sacrifice this season maybe next season To try to To build that winter and the really. Let's be honest is there. There just isn't the kind of excitement for the giants going into the twenty twenty season as there has been in past years because this has been an organization that really really has a tried to go out and win every single year and sometimes making moves that worked for the short run and maybe even hurt the team for the long run so that's kind of a long preamble to the question of how the Giants Front Office views the twenty twenty season in terms of winning as compared or to What you guys are trying to do for the long run? I would say that a goal hasn't really changed We you WANNA play meaningful competitive baseball deep into two thousand twenty as as we possibly can and while simultaneously making sound baseball decisions that proved the long term health of our organization and our future and I think it's fair to characterize the question the way you did. I I will just say that Unfortunately this goal Means that sometimes you have to make tough strategic decisions to strengthen your minor league system when at times the money could be spent to address other needs perhaps at the big league level perhaps In in other areas a I and a good example in my opinion of this type of decision is the wheel wells and trade that we made earlier in the off season we had an opportunity To to invest in the remainder of Zakho Czars contract to access A player who we really liked in the draft who ultimately went with with the fifteenth pick As polished right handed shortstop who who we believe has has a real chance to grow into The core the next young core of giants. Hi It's at the be level and and sometimes you just don't have access to that type of talent without Making strategic decisions that that seemed tough on the surface but but that we table leave and and Additionally I will say that you know sometimes it it also means making tough decisions to trade veterans who can help in in the short term but who you know can help more in the long term because they provide access to Prospects who again can can grow into the next core of the giants On a on a sustainable winter here in San Francisco in a good example of that type of deal is is a SAM dyson deal from from last July. And I I think finally It means that sometimes you have extremely difficult decisions where you need to move on from A a veteran WHO's a familiar face? Who who is Played here for a while. Just to create opportunities attorney and create a path to every day at bats for young up and coming prospects and a good example of that type of trade is is actually a trade that four hundred. I haven't made. It's it's a trade. The Brian Saving made When he traded Benjie Molina in two thousand ten to open up opportunity for a young up and coming catcher? Buster Posey and These trains are always difficult. These moves are always difficult But sometimes they work out really well and and one other point worth worth noting on on this front is I think ron and I both believe that. One of the most undervalued assets for Rowing Organization is opportunity at the big level. It's the opportunity to give young players chance to play in the big leagues. Because we feel like you can't find talent without offering opportunity..
