Action Steps Are Required

I don't think anyone has 'the' answer to fix this team. The morale and energy is so low that it tangible in the air when you are at the GABP. Winning a few games would change that, but only until the next bullpen/offensive/defensive blowup. The cycle of negativity won't be broken until Jerry Narron is relaced. By whom? Hopefully not Bucky Dent. I've hear Glenn hubbard's name mentioned but I don't know much about him other than he played 2nd base and that he supposedly is good with young players. Whoever is hired has to be loose and at the same time disciplined because now or within the next 2/3 weeks is the time to begin bringing up some of the minor league standouts.
Why not let Bailey and Dumatrait get some action and experience before the all-star break and before the trading season begins.
Same with Votto and maybe Jay Bruce too.

For my money (or Castellini's $) Ross, Conine, Castro, Kepplnger, Stanton, Moeller, and Saarloos are all candidates for immediate change in status. Either try to trade, demote, or DFA as many of these guys as possible. They all can't be moved at once so the team will evolve through a 2 to 6 week change in the roster.If Josh Hamilton is half as good as he seems and with MulitpleMan = Ryan Freel, the team core remains strong. The upside is that Hamilton, Phillips, Gonzo, Dunn, EddieE, Burton, Belilse, Votto, and Bailey are still developing and all have a lot of room to grow. Veterns like Grif, Hatteberg, Freel, Valentine, Harang, and Arroyo are seasoned and proven. A strong hitting vetern catcher is an A priority. The starting pitching would be positivily affected by the addition of a vetern catcher. I know these guys don't grow on trees, but that's Krivsky's JOB. Narron is toast and Krivsky had better step up and DO HIS JOB or he should be toast - yes its a very difficult assignment but if he can't do then get someone who can.

I suggest that this course of action will recreate a winning atmosphere and will re-energize this team. It is time now to IMPLEMENT some of these kind of actions. This is a real challenge therefore Action steps are required.
