I’ve not liked a lot of what Krivsky’s done as Reds GM, and his communication skills leave a lot to be desired, but I’ve pretty much given him the benefit of the doubt. As we’ve discussed a lot, there’s a real value in continuity, and whatever plan Krivsky has, it can’t be implemented in a year and a half. We keep changing GMs halfway through their rebuilding plan, so the rebuilding goes on forever.
But days like today…
Especially when I read this quote from over at John Fay’s blog:
Are the Reds going to add a position player soon?
Ã¢â‚¬Å“I have no idea. This is how weÃ¢â‚¬â„¢re going tonight. I donÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t know whatÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s going to happen in the future.Ã¢â‚¬Â
Reminds me of one of the top three most-quotable movies of all time:
I like that. “I Don’t Know.” That’s nice.
“Mr. Hand, will I pass this class?” Gee, Mr. Spicoli, I don’t know! You know what I’m going to do? I’m going to leave your words right up here for all my classes to enjoy, giving you full credit of course, Mr. Spicoli.
Krivsky’s apparently lost Fay and Rosecrans. McCoy doesn’t blog but his game note is already up. No rips on Krivsky, just a circa-1976 pop culture reference. I don’t know if I’m ready to pull the trigger quite yet, but every day brings me that much closer. There’s just very little reason to believe that Wayne Krivsky actually has a plan. In fact, I think he just admitted that he doesn’t.
