    Mr. Castellini Reportedly, Said The Fans Should Assume

    "Should fans assume that the Reds will be just as aggressive in pursuing players this winter as they were in targeting two national broadcasters?"

    "Absolutely," Castellini said, without hesitation. "Absolutely."

    Source:

    Points:

    1.) Should fans assume
    2.) Reds will be just as aggressive in pursuing players
    3.)Absolutely
    4.)Castellini said

    I am a fan, and I am assuming, in trust and good faith that the Reds and Mr. Bob Castellini will aggressively pursue, attempt to obtain, players in the highest quality that the market makes available to the Reds organization, just as they have presented and implied that they did in seeking broadcasting talent.


    How do the rest of you interpret the quote above and do you believe it credible?

    I just hope they aggressively pursue players that project to add value.

    Well I do also, and he is also quoted as having challenged or charged Mr. Krivsky to achieve that in having reportedly said;

    "I'll just throw this out to Wayne Krivsky," the Reds' CEO said at a Tuesday afternoon press conference. "If you can put together as good a team on the field as John Allen has put together in the broadcasting booths, we'll be in the World Series next year."

    I absolutely believe Castellini will allow Krivsky to go after the best. He's done nothing so far to make me believe otherwise.

    Same here.

    I love how the reporter said that Castellini responded "without hesitation." He wants a winner, period. No equivocation.
    Makes all the routine posts.

    I love being a Reds fan!

    Wayne and Bob are going to have their work cut out for them if they intend to truly go after the Zito and Maddux types.

    There is no such thing as a pitching prospect.

    You're absolutely right. People often forget that Castellini/Krivsky only had the end of the offseason last year and still came up with some good acquistions (Arroyo, Hatteberg). They have alot of work to do, but I am encouraged that the Reds are at least trying to make this organization respectable again.

    So does this mean we're getting Zito? What other big names are out there?

    Quite a few, and or at least enough to more than adequately fill the holes.

    Re: Mr. Castellini Reportedly, Said The Fans Should Assume

    is there a post somewhere here to tell me how this posting process works? it sounds like a god awful way of determining who should "win the rights to negotiate" with the player....why cant these players be bought by MLB with the luxury tax and thrown into the mlb draft?

    He wasn't to the Cubs in '06.

    No Thank you. Let someone else overpay for this guy's services and .330 OB%. He's making 6 MIL/yr now. Who knows what he'll get in the off-season.

    "panic" only comes from having real expectations
