I would file this (http://www.daytondailynews.com/blogs/content/shared-gen/blogs/dayton/cincinnatireds/entries/2009/08/20/so_what_is_the_grand_plan.html) under "straight talk."

Excerpt:


Nearly every day WLW, the Cincinnati Reds flagship station, plays a sound bite from CEO Bob Castellini in which he says, “We’re just not going to lose any more.”

That sound bite comes from two years ago and was an answer to a question I posed on the day general manager Wayne Krivskhy was fired early in the 2008 season.

The question was, “When are the Reds going to consider some stability in the general manager’s office and in the manager’s chair.”
Castellini wasn’t happy with my question and snapped out the answer, “We just aren’t going to lose any more.”

How is that working so far? As today’s game unfolded, the Reds were 19 games under .500 and the only team below them in the NL Central is the Pittsburgh Pirates.


I disagree with some parts, but the majority is spot on.

Thoughts?

Hal is going out swinging, and it's good to see that at least one the writers sees what we have been seeing for years.

Ah, I didn't realize it was the same article with the financial focus.

Yeah, there were a few notable things within that one from Hal.
