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.— 34inXXIII (@34inXXIII) April 19, 2018
I was watching a lot of different baseball games yesterday afternoon and was surprised that Bryan Price was still the Reds manager. If any team in baseball needs a change in culture, it’s Cincinnati.— Drew Steele (@DrewMetal14) April 19, 2018
Firing Bryan Price doesn’t make the Reds roster suck any less— Zachariah (@Zvallee11) April 19, 2018
I tend to agree with the Reds that Bryan Price is a bad manager. That said, April 19 is a pretty insane time to be firing your manager and pitching coach, right?— Matt Janik (@MattJanik) April 19, 2018
You have a talent problem, not a management problem.
I'm trying to think of a reaction to the Bryan Price firing, but all I can come up with is that the Reds seem like a troubled franchise. So there. That's my take.— Jason Foster (@ByJasonFoster) April 19, 2018
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.— David Jablonski (@DavidPJablonski) April 19, 2018
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?— Ken Rosenthal (@Ken_Rosenthal) April 19, 2018
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.— Dan Ryan (@DaMonkeyUC) April 19, 2018
