...front office the best in baseball through the first half of the season.

:eek:

Best front office
Reds
New general manager Wayne Krivsky quickly made his mark with two moves that have been central to his club's strong start: He traded outfielder Wily Mo Peña to Boston for righthander Bronson Arroyo (9-4, 2.58) in March, then dealt a lightly regarded prospect to Cleveland for second baseman Brandon Phillips (.314, seven homers, 43 RBIs) in April. Both players should be in Pittsburgh for the All-Star Game on July 11.

Hes done a great job. If only he'd fix the bullpen he'd be batting 1000 as it is he's hitting a robust 750 in my book

2 for 3 is actually 666

I'd give him credit for David Ross, too, to bring it up to .750

I gotta disagree, I wouldn't put the BP as a major failing as they have done things that they could to improve. Its not as if there are spare BP arms just sitting out there. You go asking for a Haren or Mota and they're probably going to ask you for a Dunn or Arroyo in return.

They have DFA'd White, Williams and Womack who weren't really contributing to the team. Have managed to put out a fairly balanced offensive team.

I take this as bad news. SI had the Reds ranked 28th in the majors before the season began. I think they just jinxed Krivsky.
