What does the Jocketty hire mean for the Farm System?
Im interested as to how this hire will effect the minor leagues. What is his player development history broken down between position players and pitchers?
I dont see there being any way for Jocketty and Krivsky to remain here unless Jocketty takes over and Bob Cast. takes a step back away from everything which if Im not mistaking I believe he has said he plans to actually do that.
This is what will sell me on this move. I personally believe the only way for the Reds or any team in baseball in '08 to win is by the farm system. When the Red Sox and Yankees are holding onto their prospects that means something.
So whats Jocketty's track record on developing players?
