    This is a great hire from what I found in this article. Krivisky is not wasting time at all.

    Reds hire 'Squeaky' Parker

    CINCINNATI -- Cincinnati Reds general manager Wayne Krivsky on Saturday hired legendary scout Ken "Squeaky" Parker.
    Parker, 69, will work for the Reds as a professional scout.

    "Squeaky is a tremendous baseball person whose experience and expertise in scouting are equaled by very few in the game," Krivsky said. "We hold him in the same high regard as we do Gene Bennett and Larry Barton. Squeaky is a very welcome addition to the Reds family."

    Parker has been a scout for the Philadelphia Phillies, Baltimore Orioles, San Francisco Giants and most recently the Pittsburgh Pirates, where he was a special assistant to the general manager. He also worked for Major League Baseball's scouting bureau.

    He signed such notable Major League players as Will Clark, Matt Williams, Charlie Hayes, Jeff Brantley, Robby Thompson and Mike Remlinger.

    Parker also spent time as the Minor League hitting coordinator for the Pirates and in 2003 managed the Baton Rouge River Bats to the independent Southeastern League championship.

    If this was the guy that signed Zack Duke then the Reds may be on to something.
