    I wonder how how dedicated Castellini is to keeping Wayne around...

    I hope they have secret talks with Jocketty underway right now.

    I'd give my left thumb for the Reds to hire him. Even if it meant having to deal with Tony LaRussa as the manager.
    Pray for Rain.

    IF Jocketty comes, does LaRussa follow?

    You'd have to think so. And I'm guessing Dave Duncan will be part of the package as well.

    Does Dave Duncan make up for the the way the farm system will be handled....theoretically. I could be wrong, but isn't Jocketty's biggest problem the way he handles prospects?

    Its late, I could be off base.

    Cincinnati Reds - 75, 76, 90
    Chicago Blackhawks - 10, 13

    Part of me says yes, most of me says no.

    For whatever reason, I almost see LaRussa wanting to be a GM/Manager, so he can "buy his own groceries" to steal a phrase from Bill Parcells. Could be an interesting situation.

    Jocketty, old school, replaced by Luhnow, new school. Do folks really want the old school guy here?

    Duncan's signed through 2008. I have a hard time believing the Cards would let him defect to a division rival while under contract.
