Forst is Beane’s assistant in Oakland, and is a former Harvard baseball captain (he’s pictured on the left in a 1996 photo). According to the Globe’s Gordon Edes, “Forst is on the fast track to becoming a general manager, but he recently turned down an offer to become GM of the Diamondbacks… and appears in no hurry to end his apprenticeship with Beane. Sources close to Forst have indicated that he is not interested in the Red Sox GM job.
