He’s been offered the position, according to the DDN

Jocketty is considering the offer and has told friends he would have a job in baseball within a week. If he comes to Cincinnati, he most likely would be in charge of baseball operations, a position below Castellini and above General Manager Wayne Krivsky.

I’m not sure what this position would mean…lame duck status for Krivsky perhaps?

Reminds me of when Marge and Bowden used to stockpile managers as “Assistant to the GM”, just waiting for the right time to fire the current manager.
