    Doc sez Krivsky FIRED!

    Krivsky fired
    BY PAUL DAUGHERTY | PDAUGHERTY@ENQURIER.COM

    Reds general manager Wayne Krivsky his been fired less that three years after taking over the position several sources have confirmed to the Enquirer's Paul Daugherty.

    Krivsky is still in a three-year contract that runs through the 2008 season.

    Krivsky was hired on Feb. 9, 2006, replacing Dan O’Brien as the Reds general manager. He was the first general manager to be hired under the Reds ownership group led by Bob Castellini.

    Krivsky previously had served as an assistant general manager with the Minnesota Twins, and almost named Reds general manager in 2003, when O’Brien got the nod instead.

    The move comes 21 days into the 2008 season. The Reds are currently 9-12, and 5 ½ games out of first place in the National League Central.

    From Doc's blog.

    Three highly placed Reds sources have confirmed that the club has fired GM Wayne Krivsky. Walt Jocketty, current special assistant to owner Bob Castellini and former GM for the St. Louis Cardinals, will be announced as Krivsky's replacement at a news conference later today.

    This is shocking. I would hope this has to do w/ something bigger than the team's start.

    W...T...F...

    I wonder if the Marty/Butcher incident was a window here. Perhaps we aren't the only ones annoyed by how tightly WK plays his cards to his vest...
    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.

    I am shocked and don't know what to think about this. Krivsky was taking the long slow route of building up the pitching and we know it had to be done, but like a politician saying he will increases taxes when it has to be done gets axed.

    Wow, Castellini doesn't fool around, when he brought in Jockerty he was serious about getting it right now or else, hand writing on the wall.

    Daugherty on 1530 with Eggers right now, and he says that it is, indeed, Jocketty taking over.

    He cites WK's lack of people skills, and, in particular, stuff like conflicts with Johnny Alvarez as being among the reasons.
