    Redsí Search for D. Williamsí Replacement

    Starting a new thread to discuss Redsí search for a new Head of Baseball Ops or GM.

    Trying to avoid posts speculating about why Dick left, or rehashing whether he was good, bad or indifferent.

    Just focus on the future.

    Nothing to say except I hope they pick somebody with a winning background.

    I’d love the Reds to at least interview Kim NG. It would be great if they hired her.

    Changed it to D. Williams. Will clean up the front page and let us make a smoother transition, LOL.

    I would think Reds will focus on execs at some of the teams that do well with less money.

    A’s, Rays, maybe the Marlins, Padres, perhaps others I’m missing. Brewers.

    Or other successful recent rebuilds, White Sox.

    Would seem Reds need to figure out how to get more “bang for the buck.”

    So far, they’ve paid retail to get over .500, not sure they want to follow the higher cost model.

    Really like Billy Owens from what I've read. Apparently his background is more on the scouting side than the administrative side but he's been assistant GM in Oakland for the last two years and they're obviously pretty well run.

    My fear is that Bob reaches into his rolodex and starts picking out names from 10 or 15 years ago.

    David Bell was part of Giants FO. One might expect recommendations from among his former colleagues there.

    Matt Arnold, 40 year old VP with Brewers could be a candidate. Spent time in Reds FO years ago, then a long stretch with TB Rays. Well rounded experience, likely DJ knows him. Seems to get high marks in the articles about possible future GMs.

    Don't overthink this. Target somebody from the Rays.

    The organization with a perpetual top 5 farm club, who gave the Dodgers their GM when they decided to take baseball by storm, who take on the Red Sox and Yankees head on with remarkable success on a shoestring budget.

    Or just keep Krall, who just happened to be promoted right as the Reds started changing things wholesale two years ago, and keep the current thing going.

    If you search for "Wenis" on ZipRecruiter.com, there's several qualified candidates.
