    Re: Castellini trims list to "two or three" - Arbuckle confirms he's out

    I'm now hearing that the team basically KNOWS right now who the GM is and there might not be any second interviews that actually occur. I'm trying to get a timeline on the announcement now.

    If Kullman gets the job, it's a pretty big slap in the face to DanO.

    The two I think the Reds like, but I like them as well... the younger guys are iffy, mainly because the Cincinnati marketplace is short on patience and will demand something resembling immediate competence and accountability, this is why I feel some of the others were not interested in the interview process, some feel that they would have too short of a leash or that in fact the field was already narrowed down and the rest was just for show and mining opinions.

    I think it is either Mozeliak (Castellini's Cards connection) or Krivsky. My gut says Mozeliak but would not be surprised either way.

    I'm in the anyone but Beattie boat at the moment.

    I for one am dissapointed Arbuckle is out, solely for the reason that I would have relished the millions of posts calling him Fatty. The other ones do not come in with ready made nicknames, they will have to earn them a la Leatherpants.

    You could say the Reds gave him the bottle so to speak.

    Mozeliak would be my personal favorite of the bunch. He seems to have a nice blend of performance and scouting points of view.

    Kullman would rank second. He scores big points for landing talent in the midst of a blatant cash grab.

    Wren and Krivsky appear from the outside to be basically the same guy in different organizations. You can't argue with the success. However, both organizations (especially the Twins) are too tool oriented for my liking. Get it right and you have the Braves. Get it wrong and you have the Bowden era Reds.

    If I were handicapping this race (who I think will win), it would go:
    1) Krivsky
    2a) Mozliak
    2b) Wren
    4) Kullman

    I say Kullman or Krivsky gets it.
    Just once, I'd like to see the Reds order off the adult menu. Krivsky is the best choice considering they couldn't attract the likes of Chris Antonelli or Paul DePodesta. If it's Kullman or Beattie, it is a step back.

    I bet on Mozliak. Cardinals influence is going to be big on Cast....

    I remember one time going out to the mound to talk with Bob Gibson. He told me to get back behind the batter, that the only thing I knew about pitching was that it was hard to hit.

    I think the odds are high that it will be Krivsky. My guess is that Allen is telling Cast that Krivsky was the best candidate last time by far, but Lindner took DanO because of his local roots. I'm sure the tale of Minnesota's success is carrying a lot of weight.

    I agree that the other likely candidate is Mozeliak. Just not sure Cast & Co. necessarily know him that well from St. Louis; don't know that as minority limited partners they became close with an assistant GM.

    I also think Krivsky (over Mozeliak) because -- again, just guessing -- Cast doesn't strike me as the type who will hire a young GM. I think he will want someone he sees as "seasoned."

    Beattie's rep as being methodical will hurt him because he sounds too much like O'Brien. I see Beattie staying with the organization in a senior role, not as GM.

    Whomever they pick, please end this agony and field a winner!

    What are DOB's local roots? I didn't know he had any.

    Don't remember it all, I think he's from Ohio U. Others may recall more detail.
