    3 year extension for Jocketty....

    http://cincinnati.com/blogs/reds/201...y-for-3-years/

    The Reds announced that Walt Jocketty’s contract has been extended by three years, taking him through the 2014 season.

    Jocketty joined the Reds in January of 2008 as a special advisor to CEO Bob Castellini. Jocketty, 60, was promoted to president of baseball operations and general manager April 23 of that year.
    2014 predictions:
    99-63 WS champs (Cards take 2nd WC, Mil 3rd, Pit 4th, Chi 5th)
    Bruce/Votto neck and neck MVP race (neither takes it)
    Bailey CYA winner
    Hamilton ROY & GG

    Solid move.

    Who is available to replace him that is a clear upgrade and would take the job?

    I couldn't possibly know who would take the job. My first choice would be Dave Martinez with my second choice being Charles Nagy from Arizona.

    Martinez would be an excellent choice for any club.

    Well, at least we avoid the problem named Bill Bavasi.

    And people say I can't look on the bright side.

    WLW just reported Walt's announcement that Dusty and the entire coaching staff will return in 2012, so we can put that debate to bed for now.
