Re: Why do the Reds' writers just roll over?
The job of the reporters is to report the news. They don't have the slightest effect on how the team is operated.
I don't think any team in any sport makes their decisions because of input from the reporters covering the team.
Wayne Krivsky is not going to demote Encarnacion because John Fay confronted him with a tough question about EE's lack of production. Pressure from the reporters is not going to cause the Reds to make a move they otherwise wouldn't make.
I know people are mad and would like some changes to make them feel better. I don't think getting swept by the Pirates in a 3 game series in April means it is time to overreact and make major moves. Heck, three days ago we were all feeling pretty good about the Reds. Now some people want to start throwing players under the bus already.
