O'Brien didn't do much, I guess that's good because just about everything he did was bad.
Randa's FA deal is the only thing I can count close to being a good move that I remember.
Oh wait, he signed Mercker and got one good year out of him.
Got nothing for Reitsma.
Traded Casey for Dave Williams, said Williams was a potential #2 starter.
Sat on an overcrowded OF, without trading one to improve the team.
Signed Van Der Wall as a "big move".
Although the Reds did well on the prospect front during his era, so he does deserve some credit for that.
Thank you Walt and Bob for going for it in 2012 AND 2013!
