    Re: List of potential GM's from the Enquirer

    On XM this morning it was stated there was some legit interest in Kim Ng. Would make sense for us to be the first team with a female GM as long as she knows her stuff.

    Championships for MY teams in my lifetime:
    Cincinnati Reds - 75, 76, 90
    Chicago Blackhawks - 10, 13
    University of Kentucky - 78, 96, 98, 12
    Cincinnati Bengals - None
    Chicago Bulls - 91, 92, 93, 96, 97, 98

    Re: List of potential GM's from the Enquirer

    I like Antonetti, DePodesta, and Kullman. Michael Hill intrigues me, but I don't know enough about him to say that I do or do not like him as a candidate. With RCast's "experience" a big theme here, I'm thinking he's not going to have a real shot anyway.

    If Naehring is hired, I'm going to change my user name to Team O'Brien.

    If they are looking for previous GM or assistant GM experience, then Beattie and Wren would be the front runners. But if Kullman can impress ownership by swinging a deal or two for pitching, he just might sneak it and take it all.

    If they let him make a deal.

    I was hoping to see some other names on this list.

    Re: List of potential GM's from the Enquirer

    Lance McAlister suggested that a couple of assistant GMs for the Cards would be on the short list. Although Lance named names, the concept is so obvious that I'm surprised that the beat writers working on short lists didn't use it in compiling their short lists.

    Any deal has to be run through the boss. So if it improves the Reds pitching staff, I think Castanelli would approve any deal Kullman makes.

    I figure Wren's got to be the guy with the pole position.

    Re: List of potential GM's from the Enquirer

    Meanwhile Hal throws out other names... making me think that both lists are awash with some nonsense.

    CINCINNATI | Owner/CEO Bob Castellini has a list of candidates to become general manager of the Cincinnati Reds and plans to send out invitations for interviews.

    The invitations are not gold-embossed, but several candidates consider the job a golden opportunity and emerged quickly after general manager Dan O'Brien was fired Monday morning.

    Names surfacing immediately included Brad Kullman, Wayne Krivsky, Gary Hughes, Jack McKeon and Michael Hill, among others.

    Jack McKeon? Some folks around here will get out of the pitchforks if that happens.

    Re: List of potential GM's from the Enquirer

    I put a little more credence in the Enquirer list because I have a hard time believing they're considering either Hughes or McKeon. Hal mentioned Hughes during the last GM search as well. I think he's Hal's buddy.

    Re: List of potential GM's from the Enquirer

    Since there are only 8 names on the real list, I doubt either of those are official lists.
    My dad got to enjoy 3 Reds World Championships by the time he was my age. So far, I've only gotten to enjoy one. Step it up Redlegs!

    If I'm betting, this is who I'm taking too.
