Krivsky on Cantu

Wayne Krivsky on the Jorge Cantu move: "It's a baseball decision."

He said Jeff Keppinger will get at-bats at first base.

Krivsky thanked Cantu. "He handled it like a pro," Krivsky said. "He's a tremendous worker. He did a good job for us. But we wanted to get to 39."

There you have it.

Krivsky has proven to be an expert in moves like this. I'm anxious to see his Rule 5 draft pick for this year.

Do you think that Krivsky's getting frustrated by not finding much success landing that big pitcher?

If he is, welcome to being a Reds Fan Wayne!

The Cantu deal is just the poop cherry on this fabulous winter meeting!

I think it's crucial to point out another potential big Krivsky blunder here, folks. He dealt a highly regarded young bullpenner (Medlock) for Cantu. As they continually search for any quality arm they can find, how this team can EVER deal away any young pitcher with potential is beyond me.

John do you have any explanation now? I know Krivsky said nothing. Any hint at why this happened? It doesn't make sense any way I look at it.

Don't cry for Calvin Medlock. He wasn't that great. I doubt he ever even makes it to the majors

I hate Krivsky. He's just clueless sometimes, and Cantu will become a major league star again.

Dumping Cantu was beyond idiotic!! The guy can flat hit. He would have been a great bat off the bench, could fill in at 1st, 2nd and in the outfield and hits with power.
And I think we deserve a heck of a better reason for cutting him loose than we got from the Wizard of Kriv.
