It comes across like a bitter Cardinals fan, but I actually agree with alot of it.
Krivsky traded Willy Mo Pena for Bronson Arroyo. And he traded Jeff Stevens for Brandon Phillips. I believe he traded for Josh Hamilton from the Cubs in the Rule VI draft, and then turned around the next season and traded him for Edison Volquez. But correct me if I'm wrong. 2006 draft brought Drew Stubbs, Valaika, Jordan Smith, Heisey and Danny Dorn. 2007 draft brought Mesoraco, Todd Frazier, Zach Cozart, Neftali Soto, Matt Klinker and Jordan Hotchkiss. 2008 draft brought Alonso, Zach Stewart (Rolen), Alex Buchholz, Cody Puckett, Sappelt, and Matt Fairel. Dan O'Brien drafted Bruce, Votto, Bailey, Travis Wood, Ondrusek, Janish and Chris Dickerson. I think he also was GM when Cueto was signed, but not sure.
And Krivsky signed Harang, Arroyo, Cordero and Phillips long term. Harang was a good pitcher once, so I don't count that as a bad move. I'm not crazy about Cordero, but he he just seems off this year.
I guess Jocketty's best moves were signing Chapman and trading for Rolen. He also signed OCab, and traded for Ramon Hernandez (interestingly enough, Krivsky worked for the Orioles when that trade went down and pushed for Ryan Freel). But wasn't Jocketty responsible for signing Lincoln for 2 years? And Corey Patterson? And Willy Tavares??? He did manage to get Nick Masset for KGJ.
Yeah, I think if the Reds would miraculously win the World Series, that Castellini owes Krivsky and O'Brien rings too.
