'He's a really interesting guy and not just because he's from New Hampshire.

 

He's a guy who really embraced the analytics and learned the game as it was evolving. You talk to him and people who know him and he has a brilliant baseball mind.

 

He has a connection with Chaim Bloom, when he played in Tampa and Bloom was the number two guy in baseball operations.

 

If they go outside the organization he'll be right at the top of the list.' - Tom Caron on NH native Sam Fuld

WOW! I really just threw Sam's name out there as a Strafford County shout out, I have heard him mentioned a couple times locally as a possible option to head this new regime. Now, I wouldn't surprised at all if it happens!
