    Womack to be released? (via Sportsline)

    From their "Weekend Buzz":
    http://www.sportsline.com/mlb/story/9392407

    He's at Kinko's updating his resume: When Cincinnati activates Ken Griffey Jr. from the disabled list on Friday, the Reds are expected to release second baseman Tony Womack.

    Maybe this is the 100th time this has been posted, but I can't find it if it is. Look at the bottom of the article.

    It wouldn't surprise me, especially if the Reds pick up Cody Ross.

    Yes I agree.

    It's funny how much of an effect a decent GM has on the make up and outlook of a ball club. If this were last year Womack would be coddled and given opportunity after opportunity to shine. However, Krivsky seems to understand that the devlishly sly and handsome Mack daddy needs to go- now.

    Has anyone out there ever seen a GM worse than Dan O in evaluating talent? As I'm watching Chris Reitsma tonight on ESPN and he continues to contribute to the bullpen of a contending team, I am once again reminded of how poor a GM O'Brien was. To Krivsky's credit he has quickly eliminated a lot of OB's guys and yes I'm sure Womack will be gone very soon. Look at the guys OB thought were "talented"...Milton, Bong, Nelson, Ortiz, Lidle, Womack, Ramono, the list goes on and on. Incredible...

    Was Obie the worst GM of all time?

    He's gotta be in the conversation, I'd think.

    If the Ross trade happens in the next few days, unless the player the Dodgers get is on the 25-man roster (unlikely), I wouldn't be surprised if Womack was released then. Which would make McCracken odd man out when Griffey returns from the DL.

    I can't believe Womack has an absolute zero trade value. The Reds should be able to trade him to get SOMETHING. It's not like he's absolutely terrible.

    Well jeez it was just two years ago he was VERY instrumental in getting St Louis to the WS. Last year he had a lot of injuries and stuff. It's not like he's a career .200 batter or something.

    no, that would be his OBP...or close to it.

    TW is one of the very worst position players in the game.
    Nothing to see here. Please disperse.

    Why wait, release him yesterday.
    My dad got to enjoy 3 Reds World Championships by the time he was my age. So far, I've only gotten to enjoy one. Step it up Redlegs!

    day before before yesterday.

    Did anyone see that Seinfeld where George went all "Jedi Mind Trick" on Steinbrenner???

    Maybe we can get him to take Womack back...

    O'Brien did more to hinder the success of this franchise in two years than any GM I have ever seen in baseball. Maybe it's because I follow the Reds so closely and every move is scrutinized, but I have to think that they're hasn't been anyone worse in the last 15 years, with the possible exception of those who have run the Royals over that time period.

    It's sad when you can say that a GM who would have done absolutely nothing other than make the necessary disabled list and call-up decisions for two years would have been a significant upgrade over DanO.
