Former pitching coach Bryan Price will become the next manager of the Cincinnati Reds, according to reports. The 51 year old has coached in the majors since 2006 for the Seattle Mariners, Arizona Diamondbacks, and Cincinnati Reds. He formerly pitched in the minor leagues. This is his first managing job.
The Cincinnati Reds fired Dusty Baker because they felt they needed a new voice to take them to the World Series. And, I agreed with them. I am not sure if Bryan Price is the right choice for this job, but he has been successful as a pitching coach, and has definitely had the coaching taste of the big leagues. The experience is there, but I don't know what the future holds for the Cincinnati Reds and Bryan Price.
