Knowing Krivsky's want to improve the farm system, he should be more than willing to put his efforts into convincing Cast that increasing the draft budget would be beneficial in the overall scheme of things. We as fans obviously don't have all the facts, but when draft day comes and a situation arises where the Reds pass on Wieters, there should be a lot of irate fans and a lot of blame to be passed around, which will fall squarely on one man's shoulders. If he fails in convincing Cast, he's the one who feels the heat.
Doesn't matter, if he cries to he is blue in the face and Cast won't budge, then it is all mute. It is organizational problem AK, not one man. It starts at the top. People never gave Lindner a moments rest besides the fact he pretty much ran by the Limiteds conservative plans and let Allen/Bowden handle everything.
Cast should get no less anger directed at him than Krivsky. The plan that is on the field is his own doing. If Krivsky talked him into this mess, he should fire him, if he can't see that he needs to be fired, then he should let somebody else handle running the club. If he has ignored Krivsky's advice for rebuilding and continues to do so, then he should step down.
It is simply up to Cast. He is the boss. He can make the corrective moves.
