Re: Doc sez Krivsky FIRED!
The Reds have what appears to be good starting pitching for the first time in decades.
The Reds have what appears to be healthy pitching prospects moving steadily up the talent pipeline in the minor leagues.
The Reds are continuing to develop bats, many of which were acquired in the two recent drafts of the Krivsky era.
At the end of the day, I was a Wayne Krivsky supporter. He was working within the constraints of small market -- small market demands you nibble at the corners for some things while spending big money on others. Small market demands you gamble occasionally and hope to land the big score. He swung and miss on a few, he hit big on a few others.
The core of this team (Votto, Phillips, Keppinger, Dunn, Cueto, Volquez, Harang) WILL win. I'd lay my own money that they will be a postseason team within the next two years. Jocketty will get the credit, but it will be Krivsky that laid the foundation for this to happen.
I wish Wayne nothing but the best.
