Assistant GM Logan White has a new deal with Dodgers -- and an interview for GM job with Mets

Dodgers Assistant General Manager Logan White will interview for the New York Mets’ vacant general manager’s post, according to a baseball source who spoke on the condition of anonymity.

White will be back with the Dodgers next season in his present role if he isn’t hired by the Mets. With his current two-year contract set to expire this year, White has reached an agreement with the Dodgers on terms of a new deal.

The job interview will be the second of the year for White, who was also a candidate for the Arizona Diamondbacks position that went to Kevin Towers. White was also interviewed by the Houston Astros in 2007.

A highly regarded talent evaluator, White oversaw the drafts that produced a number of the Dodgers’ core players, including Clayton Kershaw, Jonathan Broxton, Chad Billingsley, Matt Kemp, James Loney and Russell Martin.

White will be the fifth person to be interviewed by the Mets, according to multiple reports. Others under consideration are Sandy Alderson, Rick Hahn, Josh Byrnes and Allard Baird.

Please let this overrated "talent evaluator" leave.... I want some players that can actually play baseball( except for kershaw).....

White can certainly evaluate talent, but that does not qualify him to be a GM, for the Dodgers or any other MLB team, PEROID.

Ned Colletti is a sports writer and Logan White is a Scout, neither one is qualified to be a GM.


Logan, get out while you can. You never know who the next owner will be.

Any Dodger employee, player or manager...with options...will choose to leave and work for someone other than Frank McCourt.

@crystalheuvo, I'm with you: who's next to jump ship? It's been reported publicly that Dennis Mannion was "relieved of his duties", but I've been saying from the beginning that he escaped. I won't be surprised at anybody now. Major embarrassment...

I've been saying from the beginning that he escaped. I won't be surprised at anybody now.

Mets sources are insisting its a scouting job and not the general manager position.


Merry Christmas to all of you!
