I hope that any GM can draft a couple of good players in a few years, it's what they do with the rest that tells me more and what Dan O did with the rest was retrograding nonsense.
O'Brien drafted more talent in two years than Bowden in ten and, apart from the Milton contract, which he did not want to enter into, made no bad deals--making, in fact, one of the best in Reds' history in unloading the massively overpaid local favorite, Casey. Your judgments have, IMHO, more to do with perception than facts. Bailey and Bruce--along with Alonso and Votto--none of them brought in by Krivsky--are the future of this franchise. When Walt talks to other ballclubs, whose names do you think come up? I'll bet it's the four I just mentioned.
