    Re: Trades or No Trades

    Say what you want about Dan O'Brien but he knew it would take five years to resurrect this club by building through the farm system but new ownership didn't want to hear it. Maybe Bob Cast. is realizing there is no quick fixes here.

    You have parts of this team from three different general managers....Dunn and Griffey (Bowden), Milton (O'Brien) and Hatteberg, Conine, Stanton, Weathers (Krivsky). Until you dump these players and acquire younger talent while lowering the payroll to pursue quality pitching, this club will continue to struggle.

    And speaking of the bullpen....is their a middle ground? You get aging relievers like Cormier and Stanton that should have never been signed to begin with yet...you have young relievers like McBeth, Coutlangus and Salmon that don't have a clue how to get outs when the game is on the line.

    I think what Krivsky does now and this offseason will determine whether he will be the Reds GM beyond the 2008 season.
    If you think small, you'll go nowhere in life.

    WK has made it no secret he has tried. Just the right deal didn't come. Let's face it he made 30+ transactions in his 1st year - I would be totally shocked if nothing was done. Also, Weather, Hate, and even Dunn have some value.
    And This One Belongs to the REDS!!!

    He's got tickets to sell.

    In the meantime, we need to watch the actions and ignore the noises.
