    Are you happy to see Wayne go?

    A simple poll. Are you happy to see Wayne Krivsky fired, yes or no?

    I think I need a "don't know" option.

    Seldom has such a big move happened to one of the teams I am diehard fan of that has left me so conflicted...

    I'm only unhappy because the Reds front office is in a state of constant turmoil.

    From the group that should be leading the top down vision of the team - that's not a good thing.

    This should have been done in the offseason - last year's or the up coming one.

    I think it was in poor taste and he was given a contract. It should have been upheld.

    I can't see WK being out of work long.

    I can't really decide right now. I'm in between.

    I'm not "happy" per se', but i'm not torn up about it either. Wayne has his strengths and his weaknesses. I think he'd make a fine #2, but he had some pretty big blind spots.
    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.

    No. The timing of this move could not have possibly been any worse. There has to be more than meets the eye here.

    That's pretty much how I feel about it.

    Absolutely not. Bad Timing, Bad Replacement, Bad Situation from a Dumb Owner.

    I'm okay with it. Krivsky had enough weaknesses as a GM that I believe would have been sufficient to keep the Reds from reaching true "contender status."

    I am also glad that someone other than Krivsky will be making the final decision on who the Reds select with the #7 overall pick in the draft.

    Thats just one part of it..... Jocketty has not shown he has the ability to succeed as a GM unless he has a huge payroll.

    Krivsky wasn't likely making those decisions anyways, so unless other heads roll it won't matter.
