Yankees lineup vs. Reds - Billy Eppler is a favorite for the Padres general manager job

Adam Hunger-USA TODAY Sports

Hiroki Kuroda takes to the mound to try and keep the Yankees' winning streak alive.

Joe Girardi may have finally settled on an everyday lineup with Brett Gardner, Derek Jeter, and Jacoby Ellsbury. Mark Teixeira, Brian McCann, and Carlos Beltran are in the middle of the order, and Ichiro Suzuki, Brian Roberts, and Kelly Johnson round it all out.

In their quest to find a new general manager after firing Josh Byrnes, the Padres have seemingly interviewed all of baseball in order to find the perfect candidate to lead their organization going forward. San Diego interviewed Yankees assistant general manager Billy Eppler and it seems like he, along with Rangers AGM A.J. Preller, are the leading candidates to take over the job. They plan to hire someone in the next few weeks, so we should be hearing the final decision fairly soon.
