Yet another GM has been fired by the Cincinnati Reds.They will now have their 4th GM in 6 years.This is a major reason why they've played bad in the last couple years,they've been very unstable.That in Jim Bowden(Shudders).
Wayne Krivsky,who was hired by the reds after helping the small-market Twins become a good team, was fired Wednesday.Did he deserve this?No,I don't think so,but Bob Castellini,who enjoyed much sucess with Cardinals,could not settle for mediocrity.They've gone through these GM's (Jim Bowden,Dan O'Brien,and Krivsky),and their best season in this time was Krivsky's first year in '06 when they went 80-82.
Jocketty was in St Louis for 12 years,and helped them get to the playoffs 7 times with two world series apperances and one championship.
Now Remember this,Krivsky aquired Brandon phillips for virtually nothing,and sure Arroyo hasn't done much, but they got rid of Wily Mo Pena.Johnny Cueto,Joey Votto,and Jay Bruce have developed greatly over his reign.And that trade with the Nationals,didn't really help either side,except shedding some money on the reds side.So for the critisism on that,look at the players involved.
Well Reds fans are anxious,make some good decisions Jocketty,and let's start winning some games!
