John Fay hits you with this one:
There’s been a lot of speculation nationally about the possibility of former St. Louis GM Walt Jocketty ending up with the Reds, given the that Reds CEO Bob Castellini was once a limited partner in St. Louis and he’s known to admire the work Jocketty did with the Cardinals.But it’s not going to happen.
“Wayne Krivsky is our GM. Period,” Castellini said Monday through a spokesman.
Krivsky has one year remaining on his contract. The Reds are 152-172 in his two years as GM.
Jocketty was dismissed after the season by the Cardinals.
I read the quote to my Crack Technical Staff, who responded:
Do you love me? Question mark. Please, please. Exclamation point. I want to hold you in parentheses.
When you look at the sentence, it’s just a statement of fact followed by a statement of punctuation. It doesn’t say anything about what the fact will be tomorrow.
Hope never dies.
