Padres Ask Permission To Talk w/ Billy Eppler

The San Diego Padres have fired their General Manager Josh Byrnes and are now targeting the Yankees Billy Eppler to replace him. Since Eppler is under contract with the Yankees the Padres had to ask for permission to chat with the Yankees assistant General Manager. Eppler is a San Diego native and will likely be seriously considered for the job.

Eppler has been with the Yankees since 2004 when he was the director of pro scouting. Eppler has also widely been considered to be the heir apparent to Brian Cashman when he decides to leave, whether it be 2015 or beyond, but may jump ship for a sure deal. Good luck to Eppler either way.
