Re: Time to make the call: Are the Reds buyers or sellers
Unless a hot or cold streak makes the choice obvious, I expect them to keep straddling the fence. Krivsky will make what deals he can to improve the club as long as those moves don't touch the core of the club as he sees it for 2007 and beyond -- in other words, no trades of Homer Bailey or Joey Votto for a rent-a-player. At the same time, Castellini wants to win and, more to the point, he wants to convince Cincinnati fans that he wants to win and isn't just giving it lip service. If the line breaks, then fine, wave the white flag, but not until then.
Not all who wander are lost
