Re: There's no joy in Cincinnati
While I know that Krivsky wasn't with the Reds while Bowden was here, is there no institutional memory on the Reds? Ronald Reagan used to quote a Russian proverb while engaged in arms limitation talks with the Soviet Union: "Trust but verify." If you are dealing with Jim Bowden, you should know to trust and repeatedly verify, as Bowden is less trust worthy than a Russian KGB agent. Krivsky really should never have even made the trade, but at a minimum he should have had the Nationals' pitchers undergo a medical exam prior to making the trade.
