Krivsky notes:

He has contacted every single team and he is still looking for pitching. More or less spoke about looking for a good team to trade with. He has the typical GM board and uses that all day long to try and find a fit. He says he feels like the position player aspect of the team is solid and is just looking for pitching.

He also said that Dusty Baker is going to find out how to use both Hatteberg and Votto at 1B. But added that Votto will be a huge bat in the middle of the lineup.

He is excited about Homer Bailey (only mentioned him because he was asked about him).

He seemed like he was selling Hamilton on the air saying he was healthy and talked to him two days ago and he is already on an offseason workout program. He is concentrating on flexibility and everything. But he never mentioned his being a great part for the future of this team. (I would hate to lose him.)

Of course he was excited about the Cordero signing and he said he was two weeks in the making and that the deal was done the day after Thanksgiving (pending the physical). Its strange how he had been talking to Coco's agent for two weeks prior to any knowledge of the deal. Its like the Reds front office holds its secrets tighter than the CIA.

The most encouraging thing to me was that he knows he is still not done. He says they still need starting pitching and relief help. He mentioned the following names as being a help for Cordero in the pen next season. Weathers, Burton, Coffey, Majewski, Stanton, and Bray. Stanton? Ugh!

Thats about it. Good interview for sure.

As we got off the phone, Dusty said, "I hope we have a couple more of these (conference calls) before we get down there (to spring training)."

That quote right there gives me a boner

I really hope he was joking about Hatteberg and Votto sharing time. He also tells us that Coffey, Stanton , and Majewski will most likely be on the roster next year.:bang:

If we win I might not care who plays where.

maybe the Mike Stanton signing is just one big joke he is playing on us!

I am hoping it was just a throwaway line, like the time he called Votto a AAAA player.

why did he call Votto a AAAA player? I mean, I don't care if that is what he thinks, but can he say something like that publicly? Its stupid... Why lower the value of one of your players?

When did those words come out of Waynes mouth?

I think Stanton is like a racist joke. You can get by with it sometimes with friends but once you bring it out publicly you just look bad.

I believe it was on a radio show near the end of last season. My mistake, I think one of the Reds beat reporters said that he had a source who told him that Reds management believed that Votto was a AAAA player. It was some time ago, so I could be wrong.

Yea I dont consider Reds beat writers to be very good, so I would ignore that if I was you.
