From the Enquirer:

Reds general manager Wayne Krivsky has been fired less than three years after taking over the position several sources have confirmed to the Enquirer’s Paul Daugherty.

He will be replaced by Walt Jocketty, who previously was the general manager of the St. Louis Cardinals, and who came to Cincinnati this season as special advisor to the president and CEO of the Reds.

Does this really surprise anyone? Doesn’t me. Krivsky’s done some good things for the Reds, continued the building of the farm system, made a couple of good finds (Phillips, Ross); but when Jocketty came to the Reds, IMO, it was just a matter of time.

That said, I am surprised by the timing. Why now?
