Who do you think will be the next GM of the Reds?

I added a few more rumored choices to the poll. I hope you don't mind, Krusty.

I have a feeling it will be Kullman for at least for this season.

I went with DePo if only out of interest to see what he could accomplish. Given his exit from LA, he's likely hungry to prove his critics wrong.

I voted for Beattie, because the question was asked "Who you you think will be the new GM." I think Beattie will get the job.

Who I WANT is another story. In this order, here's my choices:

1) DePodesta
2) Krivsky
3) Kullman

I went with Kullmen for the same reason - I think its either him or Beattie right now.

Who I WANT:

(1) DePodesta
(2) Antonetti
(3) Wren
(4) Krivsky
(5) Kullmen

Antonetti would be an interesting choice because I really like what the Indians have done with their minor league system. I could live with Antonetti.

I voted for Beattie, but if he's the choice I'll be disappointed. Cast should put on a full court press to get DePodesta, but I doubt it will happen. :(

I hope it's someone who has never been a GM before, or if they have been..that they have a LOT of success

I voted for Kullman. I get the impression that he and Krivsky could end up being at the front of the list (at least out of the names that have been mentioned thus far).

I voted for Kim Ng. I don't think that will happen, but out of everyone so far she is my favorie. I admit, I think it would be a neat historical moment as well - first woman GM.

But I really haven't researched this closely.

If he were listed, I would vote for John Mozeliak, the Cards Assistant General Manager and Director, Baseball Operations.

I'm betting on Pete Rose.

I voted for Beattie because he seems to be tight with Cast. I would much prefer Kullman. Beattie's track record is not that great in my opinion and I would be disappointed at that choice as GM.

I'm leaning towards saying it'll be Kullman. We'll get a good indication as to how much of a "foot in the door" he has over the next couple weeks. If Casty is going to let him wheel and deal prior to spring training, then that's probably a good indication that he trusts him enough to make him a permenant hire.

I'm just hoping it's not this Beattie guy. He does NOT fit the mold of what we're looking for in a GM at all (neither does Kullman, for that matter, but I'll take the devil I don't know in this situation as opposed to the guy with the track record of being in charge of losing ballclubs).

I'm actually considering sending a resume to the Reds as soon as the new GM is hired to see if they're looking for an assistant GM who brings nothing to the table.

A name that should probably be brought up more often, or at all.

If Antonetti were hired as GM, I imagine that Brad Kullman's input would be welcomed. Kullman oversaw the Reds' computerized advanced scouting stuff, and Antonetti helped build the Indians' computer system from the ground up. They are both data driven people. Nerdy on the inside. Very presentable and telegenic on the outside. I happen to know that they both had the same Sport Marketing professor in graduate school, for what it's worth.

Ben Cherington, the Red Sox' GM-for-the-winter got brought in from Cleveland years ago, in lange part because of his know-how of the Indians' computer systems.

If we get Antonetti, we get the Indians' trade secrets.

While the produce business isn't exactly high tech, Castellini is a top notch business guy, and I'm sure understands that this should be a major consideration.
