Twitter Takeover with Jerry Dipoto
It’s no secret to the baseball world that Jerry Dipoto has been busy since taking the reigns at Safeco Field. In his two months as Mariners GM, Dipoto has made five trades, signed three free agents and claimed two players off waivers in an effort to revamp the roster in his vision, all before heading into next week’s Winter Meetings in Nashville, Tennessee.
Sandwiched between yesterday’s flurry of moves and today’s signing of Nori Aoki, he somehow found time to sit down and answer questions from fans on Twitter. Jerry weighed in on his team-building philosophies, his time in Seattle, his favorite Christmas movie and everything in between. At one point, #AskDipoto was even trending in Seattle.
Here’s a recap of his answers:
All good things must eventually come to end. After a solid 30 minutes of answering questions, Jerry had to get back to work.
In fact, less than an hour after wrapping things up with fans on Twitter, it was officially announced that Nori Aoki had signed with the club for the 2016 season with an option for 2017.
Thanks again to everyone that participated in today’s chat.
