Jocketty's continues to recover former team

... Walt Jocketty tends to "re-group" when possible. This wouldn't be the first time he has brought fellow baseball folks back into his fold. There were no Reds employees fired to make room for the "recovered" former Jocketty employees. Mike Squires worked for the St. Louis Cardinals during the Jocketty era.

More details on the Reds' acquisition can be found at the link provided below:

Reds add punch to Jocketty's team: "Walt Jocketty knows the importance of surrounding himself with bright baseball people, and he has taken three steps in that direction.

The Cincinnati Reds have added three top-notch front-office people with the addition of Cam Bonifay, Mike Squires and Jamie Quirk — all people from Jocketty's past."
