    How much does WK make?

    Just out of curiosity, does any one know how much money our GM is making per season?

    Less than Juan Castro.
    Games are won on run differential -- scoring more than your opponent. Runs are runs, scored or prevented they all count the same. Worry about scoring more and allowing fewer, not which positions contribute to which side of the equation or how "consistent" you are at your current level of performance.

    not sure... but I did find this...

    Wayne Krivsky was named Reds general manager on February 8, 2006. He is in his first season in the organization and in his 30th season in a Major League Baseball front office. Krivsky signed a 2-year contract through the 2007 season with two 1-year mutual options.

    Didn't his contract get extended already? I think they picked up the option last summer.

    looks that way....

    On June 28, 2006, Narron's contract was extended to cover the 2008 season. The Reds also extended general manager Wayne Krivsky's contract through 2008 at the same time.

    His salary has never been publicly disclosed. Ditto DanO's, before him.

    Re: How much does WK make?

    My guess, and it's purely a guess, is an escalating salary from 175k to 300K.
    It's absolutely pathetic that people can't have an opinion from actually watching games and supplementing that with stats. If you voice an opinion that doesn't fit into a black/white box you will get completely misrepresented and basically called a tobacco chewing traditionalist...

    Re: How much does WK make?

    Is that really all the more he makes? I know that were not the yankees, but isnt their gm making 2 mil a year? It seems like that salary is a little low for how little security they have...

    300K is actually about the league average for that position. Kinda strange considering just how important they are to the success of a team, I would think that a solid-to-above GM should make nearly as much as a solid manager. 600-800K sounds more reasonable considering what some of these "allegedgedly" good Managers make.

    Re: How much does WK make?

    That's what happens when you have positions where you can't prove that success is YOUR "fault". Whereas with a player you can demonstrably show the impact and thus justify great salary differences (20 million vs. 300,000). However, for other positions, all you need to do is outbid the other guys and there's so much unknown and/or unmeasurable about the quality of the person being hired that you can't justify great variation from the other bidders.

    I assume Andrew W.K. makes a good bit of money, what with his never-ending roster of songs about partying.
