WASHINGTON, DC -- Cincinnati Reds general manager Wayne Krivsky will become a member of the Bush administration, said White House Press Secretary Tony Snow in a press conference this afternoon.
“Mr. Krivsky's ability to keep even the most mundane details secret are a good match for this administration,” explained Snow. Krivsky is well known among Reds fans and the media for “playing close to the vest” when it comes to team activities, especially potential trades.
“Sometimes, it seems like even he doesn't know what's going on,” continued Snow. “And we like that.”
Like the Bush administration, Krivsky's approval rating is not as high as it once was, though he remains quite popular with some very wealthy Americans. Reds' owner Bob Castellini likes him very well, as do many other teams' owners and general managers, though for different reasons.
“The fact that he sent them to Washington shows where his loyalties lie,” said Snow.
