Bowden takes DC job, Gillick.. ?
AP is reporting that Jim Bowden, former GM of the Reds, will be the new GM of the to-be-renamed-Expos. I once named Bowden the most disappointing GM to me, but that’s not really important.
What it means is that Gillick, who weirdly hasn’t left yet, doesn’t get the job. Presumably he’ll continue to cash pay paychecks until one of his old proteges gives him a gig, like Bavasi did for Evans. At some point this off-season, though, I totally agree with Dave in that I expect Gillick to leave the team.
