I don't know about that. How long will Krivsky keep his job if the Reds don't put a winner on the field?
Krivsky's never said he was rebuilding, in fact he's said quite the opposite. I know a lot folks around here, myself included, have wanted him to rebuild. We've looked at the current state of the franchise and what it has in the minors and figured that a rebuild should be undertaken. Yet that's just fans projecting their wishes onto the franchise.
Krivsky probably knows he needs to win now, so perhaps if he snags a guy who has won (like Baker) and convinces Castellini to pony up for what that manager says he needs, then he can save his bacon. Once again, this doesn't strike me as a great idea, but I think it does match up with Krivsky's personal interests - old school manager who'll want to win a division from the jump.
BTW, if this goes down, then get ready for the club to make a major play for Carlos Silva.
