Re: Could this not be DanO's fault???
It does seem to be all business these days but this is a new group taking over and they might have more gumption to make the Reds a competitive club again. Lindner has been in the money side of things for a long long time and IMO, I don't think he was very excited about the game. It will take more than one season to turn things around and especially getting things in order this late in the off season.
If DanO has a real grip on getting the right people in the right places and he didn't have that control before it will also be the next off season before he can make real changes. This being the case I suspect we're going with primarily the team roster we see now. If the Reds make it to the All Star game with a chance to take the division we may see what the new ownership is about.
