just saw this.. we need another outfielder and he can play all 3 positions.. has pop and if the Reds cant get Sanders of the bench, why not Jose Cruz Jr????

Interesting.... he K's a bit much for my taste but he has experience and he certainly would be no worse than Wise or Watson, I like it.

The Reds could do better for a bench guy with pop but could do worse as well; Cruz isn't Minnesota-ey enough for Kriv's taste, so it's all a moot point.

Listen to you guys baggin on Krivsky. We have the best GM since... ever... and you guys rip him? (OK, so I think the ex-Twins cracks are kinda funny.)

Anyway, I agree that Cruz might be worth considering. I haven't liked our backup OFs for a while and he might be decent for a pennant race. I just like saying that last part.

I wouldn't mind having him for the bench but thats all. He can play some good D but he won't hit much. Kinda like his uncle Hecter.

Probably a bad sign that he's not doing as well from the side of the plate where he gets most of his at bats.

I remember when the Reds missed out on the Jose Cruz Jr sweepstakes and it was a perceived disaster. Oh well, you just never know until there's a long track record, and even then there's no guarantee that the wheels won't fall off.

I wasn't baggin' on him. Just a little bit of humor in all of the ex-Twins that have been signed. FWIW, he's doing a great job though, IMO.

Krivsky hasn't been on the job for a year and he's already the best ever? come on.
