2008-06-27 14:00:00 (link to chat)You have been very critical of Jim Bowden over the years. If you had to summarize the top few reasons why you think he's not a good GM, what would they be?
(sbiel2 from Washington, DC)
He gets a little overly worked up over iffy fourth starter types; if they pan out, you look brilliant, and if they don't, you've blown on money on Jimmy Haynes or Ryan Drese or the like, and for what? And they never really pan out, not for very long. It's one thing to give them shots, it's another to treat them as something more than disposable starting pitchers. However, to be fair, he does seem to have learned that lesson.

He's made some really poor choices for manager in the past, but as a member of the Manny Acta Admiration Society, that's not so much an issue. Too many Boones? On his watch, the Reds' player development system went to pieces, but that's not going to happen here because of the impressive commitment the organization has made to its farm system.

I actually think this is a great front office--it's designed to be a team, and there's a lot of complementary talent involved. Bowden's surrounded by people who are great at things he isn't, and that leaves him to do things like try to work out some new wild deal. I like it. (Christina Kahrl)
