HIRE GROUND: The Angels yesterday interviewed MLB VP/Baseball Operations Kim Ng yesterday for their vacant GM position, and in L.A., Helene Elliott write the team should hire Ng "not because she's a women or despite the fact she's a woman." They "should hire Ng because she is experienced and accomplished at many facets of the game." Dodgers GM Ned Colletti said, "Kim deserves an opportunity. She's done just about everything there is to do to prepare." MLB Exec VP/Baseball Operations Joe Torre, who hired Ng to work with him in the commissioner's office, said, "It would be a terrible loss for us. But I think she is ready to take that next step." Elliott writes, "She is prepared for the Angels job. The Angels should be prepared to hire her" (L.A. TIMES, 10/27). Meanwhile, former Dodgers GM Dan Evans is scheduled to interview with the Angels today or tomorrow. The team is also "expected to receive permission to interview" Rangers Assistant GM Thad Levine after the World Series (L.A. TIMES, 10/27).
