    Kullman canned...

    according to Marc.

    1.) Brad Kullman has been fired. Can't say I'm surprised by this, but apparently this has happened within the last couple of hours. Talked to him a little before 5 and it sounded like everything was fine.

    2.) The Reds have signed -- drumroll, please -- Timo Perez. It's a minor league deal but does not, at this point, carry an invitation to big-league camp.

    Re: Kullman canned...

    I thought Bob said he would be "thrilled" if Brad stayed on even if not given the GM job?

    I guess he either changed his mind or Brad was upset that he wasn't picked as the permanent GM and decided he would not "mesh" with Krivsky's plan during today's meetings.

    Well the scuttlebutt was that Brad was getting all GM on the staff the past 2 weeks including wanting everyone to call him "The Dude" or "Dude"

    Well, *I'm* surprised, and a little disappointed; I thought Kullman did a good job for the Reds.

    On the plus side... we can't tell Krivsky to clean house and then say "except for him and him and him." If there are no sacred cows and Krivsky has complete authority to run the baseball side as he sees fit, that's a good thing, even though we might not like everything that involves. For all I know, he has someone even better lined up.

    As much as I'd like to see Kullman stay, I dont think he meshes well with the new regime. Do the Twins have an assistant who is good with sabremetrics?

    I wouldn't be surprised to see Naehring gone next.

    I know that is is only a minor league deal, but I wonder if the Timo Perez signing signifies anything regarding our outfielders? I wouldn't expect him to be starting out there under any circumstance, but it made me look twice.

    Surprised, but not surprised... Krivsky's doing the right thing - even tho' Brad had stated (on Lance's show) that he would like to stay with the Reds - he still was competition for the GM job. Lance is probably crushed...

    Re: Kullman canned...

    There have been a few additions to the blog:

    1.) Brad Kullman has been fired. Can't say I'm surprised by this, but apparently this has happened within the last couple of hours. Talked to him a little before 5 and it sounded like everything was fine.

    "The Reds appreciate all of Brad’s efforts in the 11 years he has been here," said Wayne Krivsky. "We’ve decided to make a change, and we wish he and his family well."

    Krivsky didn't want to comment any further on the matter.

    2.) The Reds have signed -- drumroll, please -- Timo Perez. It's a minor league deal but does not, at this point, carry an invitation to big-league camp. Perez, for the moment, only has a travel visa. Because of that, he cannot play in any games where admission is charged. (Don't ask me, I don't get it either) If the visa situation is resolved, he'll be put in big-league camp and have a chance to make the roster as a bench player.

    Re: Kullman canned...

    Wow! This surprised me a whole lot. I don't think I like it. In my mind, under the right GM, BK would have brought a lot to the table.

    Maybe he threw a hissy fit at not being hired? This totally knocks my socks off.

    Re: Kullman canned...

    Am I reading this right? Krivsky fired him?

    Wow! He didn't waste any time did he?

    Even more shocking considering where we were coming from in the decision-making department.

    Wayne certainly considered all options, but a calendar year didn't have to pass for him to reach his decision.
