    I swear I've never felt goosebumps as I did reading that Fox Sports story.

    Today is the day that things begin to change...and it feels so good.

    Yep, me too. I'll bet he's afraid to even say anything about a baseball move, if he wants to keep his job.

    Allen could be next but I could see him staying in a strictly marketing/business role as well. He is credited by many for his non-baseball related work.

    Finally, the first great day to be a Reds fan in two years.

    Let's just hope we bring in someone good. I would be happy with Krivsky. What would your wishlist look like?

    Re: O'Brien fired!

    Excuse me if i don't cheer the fact that someone was fired, regardless of whether or not the change needed to be made.

    I assume the reds are on the hook for the final year of his salary, and I am sure DanO will find another job in baseball. Dan O'Brien had some skills, just not GM skills. He was a big part of the '05 draft, and that may have been the Reds best draft since Kearns and Dunn were taken 1-2.

    However color me unimpressed if Williams gets the job by default.
