Nobody else is reporting this yet, even via twitter. Good scoop.

Tweet right after that:

#mlb #diamondbacks No word on GM Josh Byrnes' fate

I am terribly sorry to hear. AJ is a fantastic baseball mind and human being, and I absolutely wish him the best in whatever position he moves onto next. Hopefully he will be staying within our organiztion; his intellect is an excellent asset I would hate to lose.

ESPN just relayed the USA Today report, which led me to click over here. They say it's expected to be made official tomorrow.

I'm a bit shocked that Byrnes was fired too. Who will be the replacements?

Hmm, that stings a lot more than A.J. If it's true, though, I'd vote for Peter Woodfork or Kim Ng.

Wow, it'll be interesting to find out how this all happened. Did JB stick by Hinch at the expense of his own job? As I said before, at this point the Hinch hiring was pretty hard to justify anymore.

I think both AJ and Josh (to a lesser extent) were better at giving interviews than actually doing their jobs.

Man...I hate to see both go.

I really hope they give Gibby a shot tho. No clue who should be the next GM.

Ok, Woodfork wasn't fired according to the same source.
