Good GM Candidates Dropping Out Like Flies
First Antonetti, Now Tony LaCava

"Tony LaCava, the Blue Jays director of player personnel, is 44 years old and considered one of the rising front office stars in baseball. Yet he has informed the Boston Red Sox that he does not want to interview for their general manager's opening, after passing a similar message on to the Tampa Bay Devil Rays. Blue Jays G.M. J.P. Ricciardi granted the Red Sox permission to speak to LaCava on Tuesday at the G.M.'s meetings in Indian Wells, Calif., and LaCava took the night to think it over after heart to heart discussions with both Ricciardi and Oakland Athletics G.M. Billy Beane. 'I might be the dumbest guy in baseball, but I have a great situation with the Blue Jays - it's the best job I've ever had,' LaCava said in a telephone interview Wednesday afternoon. 'It (the Red Sox) job would be a great challenge. To be able to work with that payroll? But just as I did with the Devil Rays, I didn't want to go through the process of interviewing knowing I wanted to stay here.'" -- 11.9 Jeff Blair, Toronto Globe and Mail
