    I hope that Wayne eventually spills the full story of his reasoning behind The Trade. I always felt like his public story was tempered by defensiveness and by a desire to avoid pointing out the flaws in the players he traded away. Now that he's not attached to the organizations involved in it, I hope that he can be more candid.

    The more I think about this, one event sticks out as one of the nails in the coffin of Wayne Krivsky and may give us insight into the man's communication skills that someone mentioned.

    I hae no ideas where I read this, but apparently somewhere Dusty mentioned that he had no idea Wayne was acquiring Josh Fogg. The disaster that Fogg became probably hacked off Dusty and he began to lobby for Wayne's dismissal. Also consider the little problems with Bucky Dent and Johnny Alvarez.

    Just a theory. If a guy is looking to fire someone, he didn't need amunition from the manager and other cronies.

    How is Dusty not the first (or 2nd behind the owner) guy that Krivsky notifies when signing somebody?

    Exactly. But the story goes along with his handling of The Trade when advisors said no and Wayne did what he wanted to anyway.

    You can do this stuff if you win. The Reds didn't win.

    I don't think a 9-12 start was enough to get WK fired, I don't think poor internal comunications or external communications or THE TRADE or dead money or poor roster construction orany one single thing got Krivsky fired. I think all of them together were enough.

    Krivsky was in the last year of his contract and BCast had to make a decision on whether to re-up him or not and I think he finally made the decision that he would not extend him, so why wait until they might be 12-25 or 18-40?

    Especially when he had someone that he trusted and respected in-house in Jocketty. I think that Krivsky did some positive things during his tenure, but there were enough questionable decision also to keep me from second-guessing the move.

    I think changes are coming and the period between now and the trading deadline should be most interesting.

    There are some bright spots on this club, but there are more than enough things not to like. I believe that Jocketty has had more than enough timeto identify some that he doesn't care ofr and he doesn't strike me as someone who is going to wait months to put his own stamp on a club he runs.

    It wouldn't surprise me if he receives congratulatory calls from former trading partners in the next couple of days and it would surprise me even less if he didn't use those calls to start stoking the trade fires - starting with fortifying the bench.

    After reading many articles written on this topic, I noted (and, for the most part, rightfully so) that most of the authors were quick to bring up Arroyo as Wayne's claim to fame. His biggest and best move. The one that put him on the map.

    Lucky for him that he won't be around for the end of the Arroyo story, as I have a feeling that this one is going to end badly. That extension is looking worse by the day.

    Krivsky's claim to fame may be giving out extensions that were not needed. Arroyo, Freel, Coffey, Cormier.

    The Reds have what appears to be good starting pitching for the first time in decades.

    The Reds have what appears to be healthy pitching prospects moving steadily up the talent pipeline in the minor leagues.

    The Reds are continuing to develop bats, many of which were acquired in the two recent drafts of the Krivsky era.

    At the end of the day, I was a Wayne Krivsky supporter. He was working within the constraints of small market -- small market demands you nibble at the corners for some things while spending big money on others. Small market demands you gamble occasionally and hope to land the big score. He swung and miss on a few, he hit big on a few others.

    The core of this team (Votto, Phillips, Keppinger, Dunn, Cueto, Volquez, Harang) WILL win. I'd lay my own money that they will be a postseason team within the next two years. Jocketty will get the credit, but it will be Krivsky that laid the foundation for this to happen.

    I wish Wayne nothing but the best.
