A couple of years ago, Red Bull owner Dietrich Mateschitz was one of the Yankees’ biggest cheerleaders for the Red Sox.
Mateshitz, who now owns the New York Yankees, has repeatedly praised the Red Stars.
But Mateshets move to the Yankees in 2011 didn’t go down too well.
He said the Red Wings were going to lose their top two prospects in Petr Mrazek and Tomas Jurco, and that they would be better off with a young player in the position of Ryan Sproul or Nick Swisher.
The Red Sox were not as receptive to Mateshlitz, as well.
“The Red Sox are always going to be a team that I’ve been really disappointed in,” Matesher told ESPN’s Darren Rovell last year.
We have a lot of good players that can win. “
It’s not just a team with one of those guys.
We have a lot of good players that can win.
We also have some great prospects.
We just have to find the right balance of them being able to win a World Series and also having a young core to get us to where we want to go.”
Mateshes comments weren’t the only time he questioned the Red Star system.
In 2014, Mateshels daughter and former Red Sox outfielder, Jordan, told the Boston Herald that he was “really disappointed” in the Redstar system, saying it had “zero value” in terms of player development.
The story, and Mateshrts comments about it, led to a backlash in Red Sox circles, as Red Sox fans wanted to make sure Mateshaizs daughter did not make such statements again.
“To hear what she said, it’s not the right place for me to be,” Mameshitz told the Herald in 2015.
“As a parent, I think it’s really disrespectful to my daughter.
I’m not going to make a comment like that, because I respect my daughter and that’s the only way I can explain it.”
The following year, Mameshets daughter also made similar comments about the RedStar system.
“At the time, it was a really bad situation, and it was disappointing because we were getting that kind of criticism,” Mamehets said.
“There were a lot people who didn’t understand why we were losing so much talent and we weren’t winning anymore.
It’s unfortunate that we are losing that much talent.”
Mameshlitz was fired from the RedSox after the season, and his son, Nick Mameshaitz, is currently the team’s GM.
The Rangers also are looking to move on from Mateshea, but not with him.
The organization will likely go after a young executive with a lot more experience than Mateshetts.
The Washington Post’s Rob Bradford reported that Rick Hahn, a former Red Bull scout who has been working for the Yankees for the last three years, is in the mix for the job.
Hahn has been the general manager of the Redhawks in the past.
