    There has to be something going on behind the scenes. The big 'C' might be frustrated over not finding a right handed hitter. He knows there is a glowing weakness on the team and the GM seems to be doing nothing to fix it. Jocketty is in the office pointing out the glaring problem with the team and how he would fix it. (all my speculation of course)

    Is anyone else is carrying this story?

    C Trent on 1530 now...his guesses:

    Combination of the money tied up in bad contracts for players let go (Castro, Stanton), roster mismanagement (the Ross conundrum today).

    C Trent doesn't think the writing was always on the wall with regard to Jocketty taking over, thinks that Jocketty really didn't want to be thrust into this position right now.

    Maybe Cast is really fed up with eating all these contracts?? Could Juan Castro have pushed him over the edge?!

    Citing people skills as the reason should help ease Krivsky's transition into another FO........ NOT.

    It's a head scratcher.

    I know every prospect doesn't pan out. But I'd hate to think he's going to come in and deal a Cueto, a Bruce, a Bailey for someone just because we need a RH bat.

    Props to WK for all his good moves but it's so obvious now that the Jocketty hiring was a presage to this. I am stunned, though. I'll say this. Castellini is showing he is serious. Win. No excuses. Amazing.

    That is my biggest fear. If Cueto, Volquez, or Bruce is traded, I will freak out- literally.

    I wonder how Jocketty feels about Bruce being in AAA.

    I don't get this sentiment.

    We'll probably find out in fairly short order.

    I'm shocked. Krisky blew a few (specially on the contract side), but I'd say his overall performance was on the plus side. No one was better picking up gems for almost nothing.

    This is bad news as far as I'm concerned. I'm not convinced Jocketty can do better.

    Mine too. I'm afraid they will go out and trade one of their grade A prospects for someone with a big name who is on the verge of being washed up.

    I thought Daugherty's column this morning was incredibly stupid - looking at things completely black and white as opposed to keeping our eyes on the future while striving to succeed in the present. I know that has been a dichotomy here on RZ. I think this will prove to be an bad move, setting us back. WK wasn't Mr. Excitement, and he certainly could be taciturn with moves, but I think this organization has been on the upswing; this season's start notwithstanding.

    Wow. Castellini caves to the mobs led by the likes of Paul Daugherty.
