    Walt Jocketty Poll Time

    Grade time for Walt.

    Since his hiring, how do you grade Walt?

    D.

    Haven't been enamored of any of his moves. Trading Dunn accomplished nothing, especially since he did not replace his production. He's following suit with Krivsky in hiring old relievers and hoping for production long since past.

    He sure seems to have a fundamental lack of awareness of what has ailed this club in the years before his arrival, that's for sure. Because he is singing from the same song book with the Taveras move.

    Re: Walt Jocketty Poll Time

    None of the principal prospects gone. No pitching lost. Upgraded catcher. Well, most important of all, he's not even had one offseason.

    I'm not going to jump off a bridge because he acquired a .700 OPS CF without losing any prospects in the bargain.

    He also gave up a .900 OPS bat for well, just about nothing.

    Not a great trade, but he wasn't going to re-sign here. That's becoming more and more obvious. Time to move on.

    So, why not have a plan for when he moves on? Because it is becoming painfully clear that Walt did/does not. Fail.

    If he doesn't have a big bat before ST, I'll change my mind. Ton of bats still on the market.

    And how to explain bumping Dickerson for Taveras? Even if Dickerson bottom'd out in 2009, he still puts up better numbers than Taveras...

    The Reds Must score more runs in 2009 than they did in 2008.

    They Must allow fewer runs in 2009 than they did in 2008.

    Seems to me Walt has them headed in the wrong direction, both ways.

    That can't be emphasized enough.

    It's a dumb move, but it's one move. It doesn't preclude improvement in other areas.

    The problem, as you know, is that they were already in a hole b/c of Dunn moving on. So, yeah, it's a dumb move, because it just makes the shoveling that must be done to dig out of this particular hole that much more difficult. I am aghast that Jocketty doesn't grasp that.

    Again, no Pujols here (that we know of) to cover this kind of bad decision. No Duncan as pitching coach either...

    The guy's got a sweet spot for the scrappy speedy leadoff guy (Eckstein, Womack). But he's made his living finding middle of the order guys.
