Re: How long will Walt's honeymoon last?
Walt and Dusty are going nowhere except GABP. Frankly, I'm glad they don't have itchy fingers with the roster. Walt is learning the Reds players and prospects, planning his moves, and will act. Maybe starting at the deadline, more likely in the off-season.
My guess is that Walt will be trading current Reds players and prospects for proven major league talent. But whatever he does, I'm sure that by now he has a plan and will execute it.
Jocketty is not just some guy that you cut loose after a few months. His honeymoon will last several years, probably as long as he feels like keeping this job.
