Krivsky sure didn't hesitate to deal when he first got to Cincinnati, however. He made 12 trades in his first six months.
Since Krivsky left the Twins in February 2006, Ryan has made only four trades -- including two with Krivsky. The Twins sent Juan Castro and Kyle Lohse to the Reds last season for minor leaguers.
Because of this, a perception is building that the ever-patient Ryan has become even more cautious without Krivsky's risk-taking instincts.
Ryan brushed that theory aside. Yes, Krivsky's was a key voice at his side, especially on trades with NL clubs. But Ryan has a reputation for trusting scouts at all levels. And the Twins won 96 games last year, so it's not as if Ryan has had wholesale changes to make, the way Krivsky has with the Reds.
Ryan also has not hidden the fact he's trying to make a move to spur the 2007 team.
"We're having trouble sustaining offense," he said. "There's no better example than the [recent Detroit series]. We pitched quite well, and we needed one hit in a key situation to get us a win or two. Maybe one guy can provide that."
Four years have passed, but maybe Ryan is ready to pull another Stewart from his sleeve.
