    XM is trying to get Kullman on during the 11pm hour tonight

    for those that have XM - channel 175
    ". . . acquiring J. Blanton from Oakland for, apparently, Bailey/Cueto, Votto and a lesser prospect. I do it in a second . . . The Reds' equation this year is simple: Make Matt Belisle your #3 starter . . . trade for Blanton, win 85 or more, be in the mix all summer." - Paul Daugherty, Feb. 8, 2008

    All baseball advisors are coming to town, big "no-holds" barred meetings.

    No idea will be looked down upon, a diffrent path must be taken to be successful.

    My guess is they'll replay it.

    Overall:

    1. I don't think he made any big goofs, and overall he came off pretty good.
    2. The interviewer, Holden Kushner, wasn't bad.
    3. Kullman said he is more agressive with bringing up prospects than DanO. In response to a question about Homer Bailey, Kullman suggested that he'll be called up relatively soon, and that wouldn't have been the case under DanO. (That actually worries me... even if Homer ISN'T a fraud, there's a reason why guys like Jeremy Bonderman are going to be prematurely expensive).
    4. When asked if there's one thing to tell Reds fans, he said "Get your tickets NOW, because (paraphrasing) the good seats won't be available when the team gets turned around."
    5. He said that RCast told him that he would be considered for the job, but Kullman said that even if he's not kept on as GM he really wants to stay in the organization.
    6. When asked about the Casey/Williams trade, he didn't say one single solitary positive word about David Williams (M2 would be proud ). He all but said, "this is a salary dump."
    7. He said that a way to improve the team in the short-term would be to unload a surplus for a need (duh)... read: outfielder on the trade block.

    If I remember anything else, I'll poop it up here.

    Thus endeth the XM radio report... blah blah.

    My goodness. Homer wasn't even that good in A ball last year. Let's at least let the guy have one strong season in the minors before we start talking about calling him up.

    No, I heard it like this.... when asked about how soon for Bailey he suggested that he could "advance" faster than expected now that he was not under a more methodical GM and that in turn could mean an earlier arrival in MLB, but that was based on the theory Anything can happen.

    My impression from what I have read here and what I heard when Kullman was on WLW this afternoon was that he is wanting to be a bit "out in the public" not so "cloak and dagger"...he sounded really loose on WLW not careless, just loose like he was a "Man on a mission"...I wish I could figure a way to include more " and " in this post....anyway, in his interview on WLW he illuded to signing Dunn and Lopez to multi-year deals as a priority and also that this team was going to be hyperfocued (my word not his) on the fan and making this team the best that it can be and that means working outside of the box and cracking a few eggs.

    Best news I've seen in awhile. Wow, I might be overeacting, but I'm actually excited to be a Reds fan again.

    I loved the whole trading from an area of need to address a weakness comment. That one wasn't 100% transparent. Good to know that at least they expect more than Jake Westbrook back in return...

    Thanks for the recap chili.

    Glad to hear that Kullman didn't try to dress up Dave Williams. His statements on Bailey are worrisome, but Kullman seems to be a performance guy, so if Homer doesn't dominate down in the minors then Kullman won't have much of an itch to scratch.
