I assume the reds are on the hook for the final year of his salary, and I am sure DanO will find another job in baseball. Dan O'Brien had some skills, just not GM skills. He was a big part of the '05 draft, and that may have been the Reds best draft since Kearns and Dunn were taken 1-2.
However color me unimpressed if Williams gets the job by default.
It's not personal. Did you cheer when we cut Jimmy Haynes?
It's strictly professional.
