Duquette was the Expos' GM for a few seasons before being the Red Sox GM from 1994 through March of 2002. He hasn't worked in Major League Baseball since then.

Oppenheimer is the current vice president and director of amateur scouting for the Yankees.

Radcliff was the Twins' director of scouting from 1994-2007 and has been their vice president of player personnel since.

Baird was the Royals' GM from 2000-2006 and is currently employed in the Red Sox front office.

According to Connolley's reports, the Orioles won't seek permission to interview anyone else unless all four candidates either turn down the job are aren't deemed worthy of being hired.

Omar Minaya has interviewed for Angels' GM post

Omar MinayaBy C. Trent Rosecrans

Wait, didn't the Angels just get of a general manager who loaded up the team with bad contracts and underachieving players? Maybe Arte Moreno has a type, because the Los Angeles Times reports former Mets general manager Omar Minaya has interviewed for the Angels' open general manager position.

The Angels' are apparently interviewing everyone short of me for the position, so this may end up being nothing more than a good laugh for Mets fans, but still it seems interesting.

The others who have reportedly interviewed or gotten an interview are White Sox assistant GM Rick Hahn, MLB senior vice president Kim Ng, Diamondbacks exec Jerry DiPoto and Yankees staffers Billy Eppler and Damon Oppenheimer. Rays general manager Andrew Friedman has also been connected to the job.

Yankees block D-Backs GM search

The Yankees have denied the Diamondbacks permission to speak to Damon Oppenheimer, New York's vice president of amateur scouting, about their opening for general manager.

FoxSports.com first reported the news, and the Arizona Republic 's Nick Piecoro has confirmed the report.

Although it does seem harsh, Piecoro reminds us the Yankees did the same thing when Arizona was searching for a GM five years ago when the team wanted to interview Mark Newman.

Oppenheimer has run the Yankees' drafts since 2005.

Jerry Dipoto, Kevin Towers and Logan White are thought to be the front-runners for the job and interviews are expected to begin next week.

D-Backs zeroing in on GM candidates

The Arizona Diamondbacks have said they'd like a new general manager in place as soon as possible, and now the team reportedly will begin interviewing people over the "next couple of weeks."

FOXSports.com's Jon Paul Morosi has a list of six the Diamondbacks are expected to interview, including interim GM Jerry Dipoto. Morosi says sources tell him Arizona's higher-ups were satisfied with Dipoto's deadline-deals after he took over for Josh Byrnes.

The others listed by Morosi are current assistant GM Peter Woodfork, former Padres GM Kevin Towers, the Yankees' Damon Oppenheimer, the Dodgers' De Jon Watson and Logan White.
