For the final time. Walt jocketty is great gm. With the cards in the 90s he built a power house of team. He built it by drafting well in the 90s and then making savvy trades and other acquisitions to build a fantastic nucleus of talent. But, when it became clear that this team was going almost completely disintegrate except for yadi, pujols, carp, and waino he was left scratching his head because he had nothing on the farm that he could draw from. He had nothing on the farm because his group had bad draft after bad draft from 2000 to 2007.
My whole point is that for the sake of the reds i hope he has learned from his experiences in stl and wont make the same mistake twice. Because i am a see to believe kind of guy, i will wait till 2015 before i make an assessment as of whether or not he has changed. But, since in the last year he has traded 3 top 100 prospects i he isnt off to a great start imo.
