J has a very interesting look at GM Wayne Krivsky’s tenure in Cincinnati thus far, and I recommend you take a few minutes to read it.
For a while now, I’ve been working on drafting a post I’ve called “In Defense of Wayne Krivsky.” It’ll be published here at Redleg Nation at some point, but I decided to put it together so that I could try to get a better overall view of what Krivsky has done since he was hired. Obviously, “The Trade” was a complete and unmitigated disaster, but I’ve often wondered if that trade (and what it tells us about Krivsky’s tendencies) might not be unfairly coloring everyone’s views on Krivsky’s performance.
J makes some good points. It’s a topic I hope to explore further in the very near future.
