The old boy network is alive and well. This really dampens my hopes for the future. Hiring this clown? Jeez. From Rob Butcher:
CINCINNATI - Cincinnati Reds President of Baseball Operations and General Manager Walt Jocketty today announced the hiring of former Anaheim Angels and Seattle Mariners general manager Bill Bavasi as a special assistant.
Bavasi, 50, will advise and assist Jocketty in matters related to the front office, Major League field and support personnel and scouting.
"We're excited Bill has joined our organization," Jocketty said. "Over his career of more than 30 years, he has worked in almost every facet of baseball operations. We will benefit from his experience and insights."
