Reds seek Bengal's wisdom

The fallout from the release of reliever, Mike Stanton, and the accompanying writeoff of his $3.5 million contract, continued today.

In a noon press conference, Cincinnati Reds General Manager, Wayne Krivsky, announced, "All organizational scouting services, both major and minor league, have been outsourced as part of cost-saving restructuring program."

Krivsky added that minor league scouting operations have been contracted to the Bay of Bengal Talent Agency of Dhaka, Bangladesh. "We're certain, with a name like Bengal, that they'll pick the absolute the best talent," said Krivsky.

Unfortunately, Krivsky has been unable to reach the the agency since executing the contract. "They're always asleep when we're awake, and vice-versa," explained Krivsky. "It's been a little frustrating. However, we're confident that we'll have the minor league player profiles in time for our first Griffey injury . . . or bullpen meltdown."

Thankfully, the Reds have experienced better results with their choice of major league talent evaluation, the Red Rocket. In fact, the Red Rocket has already publicized its complete profile of 2008 Reds major league talent:

       INFIELD       OUTFIELD       CATCHERS       STARTERS       BULLPEN

"I don't know why we didn't make the move to the Red Rocket years ago," added Krivsky. "I mean, we not only receive top-notch player evaluations, but we know which reliever is best suited to host an episode of The View."
