Kevin Towers Officially Hired

According to MLBTR.

Kevin Towers was just fired from his position of General Manager of the San Diego Padres. It's a good hiring for the Yanks since it adds in another top mind to the Yankees Front Office. Cashman is a very smart man but no one in the Yankees FO can really challenge his ideas. That's how the Boston's FO works and I'll gladly take that.

Plus I have heard that his scouting ability is very good especially towards pitching. Hopefully the upcoming drafts become very 2007ish with Towers aboard.
