Jocketty in as Reds GM

The Reds have fired GM Wayne Krivsky and have moved Walt Jocketty to the position.

Krivsky was hired in Feb. of 2006 to a 3 year contract. He had been an assistant GM for the Twins previously.

Jocketty was the GM of the Cardinals from 1995 to 2007. He brought them a World Series win and another appearance. He was fired after the past season due to conflicts in the front office.

Jocketty was an adviser to the Reds and their CEO before Krisky’s firing. Many saw the move coming, but not this quickly.

Jocketty tends to use veteran players to build his team. Many players in the farm system are typically used in trades to bring in established players. His style fits well with the managerial style of Dusty Baker.

The Reds have gotten off to a slow start (9-12); many picked them to finish in the middle of the pack in the NL Central.
