MacDonald leaves - look at Tanous

As rumored earlier in the week Chad MacDonald has left the Mets for a job on the west coast with the San Diego Padres.  For what I've read MacDonald is a west coast guy and him will be working for his former boss Josh Byrnes. 

Chad MacDonald, who oversaw amateur scouting and the draft in conjunction with Paul DePodesta, only spent roughly 12 months with the Mets organization. So his legacy will be the 2011 draft that included taking high school outfielder Brandon Nimmo 13th overall, then prep right-hander Michael Fulmer out of Oklahoma with the 44th overall selection. source ESPN NY

It's being reported Tommy Tanous will take over for MacDonald, here's a 2002 interview of Tanous.
