The #Reds have fired Bryan Price, which means that I can finally pop open the champagne that I have been sitting on since January when I was expecting to open it after the #Bengals announced their new head coach.
On our Reds Facebook page, fans have already suggested Pete Rose, Chris Sabo, Barry Larkin and Dusty Baker as candidates to be the next Reds manager. Hopefully, the the Reds front office doesn't start their search by reading Facebook comments.
On the Reds: Not all rebuilding teams are going to succeed. Reds banking on young pitching, and at the moment their 5.42 ERA is worst in majors. If their pitching doesn’t develop, then what? Difficult to sign free- agent pitching as a low-revenue team in a hitter-friendly park.
I’m not a Bryan Price fan by any means but this move doesn’t fix anything. It might fix a clubhouse in terms of a new voice but this roster is bad, bad, bad. Considering what went down, who would want this job. Front office has done nothing with this roster.
