Re: Reds Sign Corey Patterson, Jerry Hairston
Bruce, Bailey, Cueto, Rosales. Dan O'Brien added more real value to this organization in two drafts than Krivsky, Jocketty, Baker etc. will ever add. The organization's biggest mistake in recent history, IMHO, was in failing to recognize O'Brien's ability to add real, long-term value. I had thought Krivsky was starting to make some progress in that direction (trading O'Brien value--Stevens for Phillips, Ward for Lohse for Maloney), but these latest moves just indicate he is back to wasting his time on the irrelevant. I predict Krivsky is within four months of the end of his tenure. If this team thinks it's going to be better by adding Corey Patterson and Jerry Hairston, there's not much future for it.
