Krivsky has made dozens of moves to change the bullpen. Narron/Pole have helped put together a 12-man staff and make the changes game by game. What is the result? More terrible pitching numbers.
There are guys on the major league staff who shouldn't be there. There are promising guys in the minors who won't be promoted. Questionable two year contracts to relievers. One guy, McBeth, keeps getting called up and never pitches. Livingston pitches well and gets sent down. Bailey is coming up, strangely before a big home series.
Most people running such a business would want somebody with a great pitching track record to come in, make specific recommendations, and do so directly to ownership. I would love to see the Reds bring in somebody like this.
How many years of substandard pitching can one team have?
