    I agree about the money. I agree that maybe Jocketty didn't want this but Cast manuevered him brilliantly.

    My jaw has yet to return to it's normal position. This is so unexpected.
    "Since I've been with the Reds in 1989, we've never had a farm system this loaded," Bowden said. "If we were the New York Yankees and had unlimited dollars, we could have traded for Colon, (Jeff) Weaver, Rolen, (Cliff) Floyd, (Kenny) Rogers and Finley and gotten them all -- and still held onto our top five prospects. That's an amazing statement."

    I would like to think that Cueto and Volquez, at the least, have shown just how valuable they are and will not be dealt.

    I wonder now about them dealing Adam, though...

    Don't like to see the organization undergo another upheaval -- let's see if Jocketty wants to bring in a new set of advisors, scouting directors, etc..... if so, it'll feel to me like they're just not gaining any traction toward sustainable success.

    I don't buy the 'money tied up in bad contracts'. Mr. C just lost a bunch of money by firing Kriv. It puts him in a worse financial situation. It always comes down to wins and losses. There's got to be more to this story.

    Well at least we wont have to worry about an infusion of those sabermatronics things just yet.

    Unbelievable.

    No way that Bob woke up and decided now was the time to fire Wayne, he had to have had it in mind for a long time, should have just done it over the offseason when Walt became available.

    Comforting I suppose that dysfunction will continue to be a Reds tradition.

    That is not a bad assumption. Investors, financial and accounting people get disturbed over tossing money out the door in the millions of dollars, especially if it is done repeatedly like it has been since Krivsky took over.

    Yeah, its a curious move.

    Lots of valleys and peaks in the curve, but its general trend was up.

    Has a Bill Bergesch to Murray Cook feel to it.

    This is very Steinbrenner-ish of Cast and the Reds. Not sure if I like it or not- it smacks a bit of over-reaction at this point in the season.

    I had heard through the grapevine that there is "no way in the world" that Jocketty wanted to be GM, and he was very happy with the position he was in. Guess that was wrong!

    I'd be surprised if Cueto or Bruce found their way out of town thanks to Walt.

    Bailey, on the other hand, would not surprise me at all.

    I have a feeling we'll see a mass exodus with our farm system.
