Who will fill the manager and general manager vacancies?

The most immediate need is a new manager to replace the departed Bruce Bochy, and that could wind up being a subsequent move to hiring a general manager to guide the front office alongside team president Farhan Zaidi.

Ken Rosenthal of Fox Sports provided some insight into the general manager search:
