O’s Hire Krivsky

Former Red’s GM Wayne Krivsky has been hired_by_the_O’s as a special assistant to the president of baseball operations. Krivsky takes the place of Scott Proefrock, who left to take the Assistant GM job with the Phillies.

It’s a solid move in my opinion. I’d think different if he was hired as GM, but whatever you have to say about some of Krivsky’s moves in Cincy, you have to admit he’s got a good eye for some talent…Brandon Phillips, Josh Hamilton, and Edinson Volquez. Perhaps he’s better in a sporting roles, rather than heading the show. He was Terry Ryan’s assistant in Minnesota for 8 years and they were pretty good at drafting and finding talent on a smaller budget.

He known Andy MacPhail for a long time and that’s fine and good. It’s a decent move because he’ll be scouting, handling contracts, and such. That’s fine, but I hope that’s not the big move of the offseason.
