CINCINNATI (AP) - Off to their worst start in five years, the
Reds have fired general manager Wayne Krivsky and replaced him with
former St. Louis GM Walt Jocketty (JAHK'-eh-tee).
Krivsky, who was hired before the 2006 season and was in the
final year of his contract, had to know 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.
Jocketty is the team's fourth general manager in six years. The
Reds also have been through two owners, four managers and an
interim manager during that span.
Cincinnati is 9-and-12 and started the day five-and-a-half games
back of the first-place Chicago Cubs in the National League Central
