Mr. Castellini made that statement in connection with a comparison to their improving the broadcast team, and he assured them that the Reds team would also be improved. The key words are not the usage of the term "agressive", they are what they imply that Castellini "absolutely" intends to improve this team, it implys that he has every intention of improving this team.
I realize that players have a choice, I realize that other organizations purchase these entertainers services. Remember Curt Flood, remember when Rose left the Reds, it has been going on for a long time.
In management it is not about lying, it is about whether the mangement team can get the job done or not.
If I was Barry I would go play for Lou in that Chicago market.
It is still early, don't panic, give Castellini and Krivsky a chance. Absolutely we shall see.
