Green over Beane

Athletics Nation is currently posting an interesting interview with A's General Manager, Billy Beane.


Now I know that Beane's a bit of a blowhard, and Wayne Krivsky is obviously a bit less of a talker. But just for a second, can you imagine what it would be like to have a general manager who would sit down and talk to someone representing the Reds' blogosphere like that? While there's a bit of spin with every response (naturally), and some topics are off-limits (again, naturally), it really is about as open of an exchange as you could ever hope to have with someone in the front office of one's favorite team. ... And on top of that, we're talking about arguably the most effective general manager over the past 10 years (pardons to John Schuerholtz), so there's little question that the guy knows what he's doing. Krivsky might, but I'm not sure yet.

I'm jealous...
