Yesterday reports surfaced that J.P. could be one of the candidates interviewed for the Orioles GM position and Ricciardi said he is always willing to listen. You also have to think the native New Englander who took a position with the Sox, before Alderson came calling will be interested in the newly vacant Boston job. Depending on how Ricciardi's job was perceived in Toronto by insiders, he either blew it like fans view him or has AL experience and was in a no win situation making him worthy of another chance. I know eventually J.P. or Depo will move on but I'd like to keep them a little longer during this rebuilding process...
