Just out of curiosity, does any one know how much money our GM is making per season?

not sure... but I did find this...

Wayne Krivsky was named Reds general manager on February 8, 2006. He is in his first season in the organization and in his 30th season in a Major League Baseball front office. Krivsky signed a 2-year contract through the 2007 season with two 1-year mutual options.

Didn't his contract get extended already? I think they picked up the option last summer.

looks that way....

On June 28, 2006, Narron's contract was extended to cover the 2008 season. The Reds also extended general manager Wayne Krivsky's contract through 2008 at the same time.

His salary has never been publicly disclosed. Ditto DanO's, before him.

My guess, and it's purely a guess, is an escalating salary from 175k to 300K.

Is that really all the more he makes? I know that were not the yankees, but isnt their gm making 2 mil a year? It seems like that salary is a little low for how little security they have...

300K is actually about the league average for that position. Kinda strange considering just how important they are to the success of a team, I would think that a solid-to-above GM should make nearly as much as a solid manager. 600-800K sounds more reasonable considering what some of these "allegedgedly" good Managers make.

That's what happens when you have positions where you can't prove that success is YOUR "fault". Whereas with a player you can demonstrably show the impact and thus justify great salary differences (20 million vs. 300,000). However, for other positions, all you need to do is outbid the other guys and there's so much unknown and/or unmeasurable about the quality of the person being hired that you can't justify great variation from the other bidders.

I assume Andrew W.K. makes a good bit of money, what with his never-ending roster of songs about partying.

Boy I thought they made more also. I thought that Bowden made $500,000 his last year with the Reds....

He had some of that old "boy wonder" hype in his favor and a playoff appearance to his credit.

This is thread is correct, though. Most GMs are in the 300k neighborhood, with a few in the $2MM-ish range.

It's a safe bet that Wayne and DanO make/made about a quarter mill a year plus or minus 50k. The fact that neither side has revealed the figure tends to make me think the Red are paying on the low end of that particular spectrum.

think about it. There are CEO out there that just make around $150,000 year and there are CEO that make tens of millions per year. If you could get more then you would take more. I bet that John Allen make around 300-500k.

Any particular reason you think that Allen makes that amount? Just curious.

Kind of depressing, really.
Can you imagine making that salary, and consistently negotiating contracts more than 10 times that amount for utility infielders and relievers?

I bet that could get sort of disheartening. Then again, you win, you go to NY or Boston you can make some real $$$. :laugh:
