Saying it’s time for “fresh thinking,” the Seattle Mariners may be thinking of hiring the first female general manager in baseball history.
Mariners president Chuck Armstrong recently praised Los Angeles Dodgers assistant GM Kim Ng. Ng has applied for the job as Mariners general manager. She formerly worked for the New York Yankees and apparently was the runner-up when Ned Coletti got the job as Los Angeles Dodgers GM. Ng formally interviewed for the Mariners job earlier this year and is expected to be brought back soon for a second interview.
