(Summarized from the AP) -- Boston Red Sox assistant general manager Josh Byrnes was hired Friday as general manager of the Arizona Diamondbacks.
The 35-year-old Byrnes is known for his elaborate statistical analysis of the game and its players and had been assistant GM of the Red Sox since Theo Epstein was hired as general manager in 2002.
Beerleaguer: Unless they're working at Taco Bell, general managers don't have names like "Josh."
He's not the youngest GM as it turns out. That honor would go to 28-year-old Jon Daniels, who was promoted to the GM position in Texas.
Seriously, how deep must Daniels' resume be? Go three spots down on his list of references and there's probably some girl named Trisha listed from Old Navy.
"Sure. I remember Josh. What's that? Did he interact well with senior scouting officials? Not sure, but he did a super job folding cargo shorts."
