This afternoon the Cincinnati Reds announced that Uncle Walt will move further up the Reds corporate ladder and named Dick Williams the new Reds GM.  Never heard of him?  Well here is the little I have learned so far.  He is a young, smart, sabermatrics baseball nerd that is ready to totally rebuild this baseball team.
