Breaking News: Wayne Krivsky Fired

Wayne Krivsky, the GM of the Reds was fired today in a very shocking event.  Many people cannot figure out the reasoning of this move for Wayne Krivsky has made some excellent moves in his tenure as GM.  He has acquired Josh Hamilton, Brandon Phillips, Bronson Arroyo and David Ross for virtually nothing.  He also signed Scott Hatteberg, signed Adam Dunn, Brandon Phillips, Aaron Harang and Bronson Arroyo to excellent contract extensions and traded Josh Hamilton for Edinson Volquez, a pitcher with electric stuff.

People say that this move only had to do with the fact that the Reds owner and their new GM, Walt Jocketty, go way way back.  It doesn't make sense if Wayne Krivsky was fired on the consensus of making mistakes for he barely has made any.  I think this was just the Reds idiotic ownership realizing that the team is on the verge of making the playoffs so therefore wanting a guy to push them over the top but in the end destroys the whole team.  This is how you screw up a teams dynamics.  Owners that are too involved in Baseball Operations tend to hire new GM's every few years.  The Reds' owner is like this and so is the Dodgers' owner.  This is by far the worst thing to do.  Like Yogi Berra once said, "If it ain't broke, don't fix it".
