I think one of the biggest thing to watch in the short term is what happens to all the people Wayne Krivsky hired.
You have to go pretty far down the food chain to find someone who was in the organization before Krivsky arrived. Bob Miller, Scott Nethery, J Harris, Chris Buckley, Tony Arias, Jim Stoekel and Squeaky Parker. That's seven of 10 people listed immediately after Krivsky in the media guide.
I don't know who call it was but it wasn't a good sign when the Reds picked a player in the Rule 5 draft who never even got in a game.
But I think one of things things that really hurt Krivsky was Johnny Almaraz leaving. Bob Castellini saw Almaraz as a potential GM. He quit because he had trouble working with Krivsky. Almaraz, the guy who signed Johnny Cueto, ended up with the Braves. That says a lot about his reputation.
