The ins and outs of AL GMs
Which general managers are easy to deal with? Which ones love to make trades? Get all the info here.
But more important is the man making the deal. A general manager's style and personality can impact the negotiations at this important time of the year. Below are my scouting reports on the American League general managers:
Theo Epstein, Boston Red Sox
Epstein is very straightforward and serious. He knows what he will do and what he won't. He cuts to the chase in most conversations. There isn't a lot of chitchat, mainly because he doesn't have much in common with other GMs; he is young and single. He is also bright and focused.
