    Re: WLW reporting that O'Brien has been fired

    The Cincinnati Reds' new owner continues to put his stamp on the team.

    FOXSports.com has learned that Bob Castellini has fired general manager Dan O'Brien.
    An announcement is set for Monday afternoon.

    Friday, in his first day running baseball's oldest professional franchise, Castellini, a produce magnate, reorganized the front office and promised fans a championship.

    Castellini's first move was to change the front office's structure. Chief operating officer John Allen will stay but will focus on the business side of the ballclub. O'Brien's replacement will run the baseball side, reporting directly to Castellini.

    I'm speechless.

    Poor McClain. He's getting married. And he wasted $25 at GoDaddy.com

    Wow.

    Who's next, Narron?
    Some people play baseball. Baseball plays Jay Bruce.

    Na, Narron will nursemaid the Reds this year. Cast wanted Pinella to manage, but Lou wants to take a year off.

    Also remember Cast praised Narron like Allen, that is a signal IMO. That DanO didn't get a kind word in that Presser, it was the writing on the wall.

    Where were you when Dan O'Brien was fired?
    Burn down the disco. Hang the blessed DJ. Because the music that he constantly plays, it says nothing to me about my life.

    Didn't they say there would be a press conference at 5:00pm?

    Help stamp out, eliminate, and do away with redundancy.

    I'm torn on this. I was not a fan of DanO because of some questionable FA signings, but he at least showed a high level of interest in developing a farm system. I was interested to see what the 2006 draft would look like.

    Of course, if a good replacement is hired, this will work out nicely. First order of business, sign Dunn to LTC.
