    Could you please explain why the Reds flagship station cut off the presser?
    Had to make some more of those "tasteful" commercials.

    They have now cut out of both press conferences. You would never know this was the Reds flagship station.

    That's a spectacular question---I missed the whole sabermetrics talk portion, because I could not get over to 1360 fast enough on the computer. Not very friendly of WLW to out of town computer listening folks, to say the least.

    Should have started on 1360 originally, I guess, but, silly me, thought the flagship would carry it in its entirety. My colossal bad.

    The above is NOT what happened when Raisor talked to his future father-in-law.

    Probably figured most of the listeners needed Furman to translate for them

    Sounds like someone needs to make the new ownership, with rumors of a captive set up ala the Cardinals, aware of this poor programming decision.

    This caught my attention in the article linked a few pages ago:

    The search for a permanent general manager will begin immediately, and the club will adhere to the interview process guidelines established by Major League Baseball.
    I didn't think of it either, but for those of us who wanted the new GM to be on the podium at Castellini's presser last Friday, this is why not. The Reds would face a stiff fine from MLB if the hiring guidelines (read: a documented process that includes minority candidates) are not followed, and obviously, Castellini could only make unofficial contacts until he was approved as the new owner.
    Not all who wander are lost

    The Cincinnati Enquirer now has an online poll asking if the Reds made the right decision in firing O'Brien. The last time I checked, the vote was 41-3 in support of the firing, a 93% approval rate. I'm guessing Rich Aurilia has only voted three times so far.

    Not only did WLW not play much of the conference, but they haven't even mentioned that he mentioned sabermetrics or anything else. They are being extremely irresponsible about this situation and showing poor journalistic methods.

    BTW, it sounds to me that Castellini is looking for someone who is of the same mold as Walt Jocketty. I like that. A lot.

    One was Aurilia, one was Jason Romano, the other was Eric Milton.

    How much can the Reds overpay for Walt Jocketty?
