Krivsky knew his job was in jeopardy when owner Bob Castellini hired Jocketty as a special consultant in January. The two were friends from Castellini's days in the Cardinals' ownership group.
When the Reds got off to a 9-12 start, Castellini made the switch that was expected at some point. Krivsky, who was hired before the 2006 season, was in the final year of his three-year contract.
Since your world outside of my safe little AL East bubble frightens and confuses me (;)) what does this mean for Cincy's organizational direction? Krivsky did pull off a nice trade to get Brandon Phillips, but suffice to say, other moves haven't worked out so well (hiya Felipe Lopez and Austin Kearns!).
