Aside from that, his work as Milwaukee's GM and as a primary assistant to DanO leave a lot to be desired. Maybe he still has some scouting skills, but I wouldn't put him in charge of the water cooler let alone the team.
ABSOLUTELY!!! He has not made any friends I can tell you that with great certainty. He rode John Schuerholz's coat tails to the Milwaukee post. Not it's time for him to go hide. Dean is a sure bet to turn your farm system into a mess. Get him outta there. I wouldn't wait until a new GM is hired. The sooner he goes the better. As one Reds consultant told me Monday, "Dean is the other shoe to drop".
