1) Royce Clayton is on the team. Sub-average defender with absolutely no stick. As he performs now, he is the type of player winners do not (and cannot) have on their roster. I wanted to give him a chance but the bubble gum loaf yesterday=unforgiveable (as was Dunn's soft toss).
2) They have 3 catchers on the roster at the end of the season (my vote to go:Larue.) Why have an extra slow, below average hitter always on the bench?
3) Majewski does not return to form. Having a quality middle to late inning guy is a key to keeping the starters fresh for the final push. Keeping the starters live is a huge issue for the team, and Narron having confidence to go to Majewski will greatly help the health of the starting staff.
Problems 1 & 2 are squarely on Krivsky, and beyond that Wayne could help the Reds problems by getting another starter. Krivsky, IMO, factors heavily in the Reds chances from here on out, and not necessarily in who he acquires but in who he parts with.
