Giants need new boss; A’s have qualified candidates

The Giants will make one of their most important franchise-shaping decisions in years when they hire someone to run baseball operations, and they’ve pledged an extensive nationwide search.
That means reaching far and wide to conduct interviews with officials from playoff teams and non-playoff teams and possibly inside the Commissioner’s Office.
CEO Larry Baer said there’s no rush to make a decision, realizing getting it right is more important than when it gets done — the new boss, after all, will help determine the organization’s road map to its short- and long-term future.
