Re: Fan Graph's baseball has Reds as 24th best organization
If turnover is the problem isn't that an ownership problem, not necessarily a GM one?
If you ask the vast majority of posters on this side, the Reds let go of the golden goose in Krivsky, only to follow his like with a guy who's won a pennant, nearly won another, and just two seasons ago won a World Championship. Sounds like some solid resumes over the last three seasons, right? Apparently not. Or maybe apparently.
I care less about the Reds than I have in a long time. Ten years of irrelevance essentially enforces that sentiment. But I don't see any reason why this team can't succeed in its current state; I may care less from an emotional standpoint, but logically, I can look at the fact that they do have a very solid bunch of young hitting talent, some current and very exciting pitchers on the MLB roster, and a GM who has been better than nearly all of his peers the last 15 years.
If folks want to dwell on Dusty Baker, Willy Taveras, and the fact that we don't have the Devil Rays front office, they're more than entitled to that. In fact, I can completely understand the frustration that a team seems to continually flout what you believe is the team's tonic.
First I want the Reds to win; second, I want the Reds to have a sustainable way of winning. In that order.
