The Orioles have received permission from the Diamondbacks to interview Jerry DiPoto as their search for a general manager to replace Andy MacPhail begins, sources have confirmed to CBSSports.com

DiPoto was Arizona's interim general manager after the Diamondbacks fired Josh Byrnes and before they hired Kevin Towers in 2010, after which he became their senior vice-president for scouting and player development. As interim GM, he was the point man for the Diamondbacks when they acquired four pitchers, including Joe Saunders and top prospect Tyler Skaggs, from the Angels for Dan Haren.

Highly respected within baseball circles, DiPoto, comes from a playing and scouting background. A former major-league pitcher, DiPoto was Colorado's director of scouting before coming to the Diamondbacks as their director of scouting and player development.

Orioles owner Peter Angelos, of course, will make the final decision on MacPhail's replacement -- with significant input from manager Buck Showalter.

Lowly fans ? Not sure what your meaning is there. Baltimore fans are rabid and loyal, we just haven't had much to cheer for in almost 15 years. We are also good spellers.Tongue out

I'm with everyone here that Jerry DiPoto should run from this interview with the lowly Orioles and there ran down fans and fast. Dipoto should just wait and try to get a better GM job then the Biltmore Orioles and just wait with a winner like the Diamondbacks and their great fan base until a better job comes around. DiPoto is way better than being stick with the Orioles and there lowly fans at little Biltmore any day.
