Reds’ Decision

first_imgBryan Price got the usual “vote of confidence” last week from G.M. Dick Williams.  This is usually the procedure when someone is about to be fired.  However, Williams stated that he was going to “stay the course” for the time being.As it turns out, “staying the course” meant 4 days.  Along with Price goes the pitching coach.  An interim replacement has been named for Price, and it is Jim Riggleman, former Nationals manager.I know that all of the Reds problems were not the fault of Price unless the way he ran Spring Training is the reason for all the injuries–especially to the pitching staff.  Like so many pro athletic teams, half of the Reds roster is not playing up to its potential.  From my experience as a coach, you can’t play for them.  They need to put in the work and get the results.  However, in pro sports it is a lot easier to fire one manager than it is to replace a dozen players.last_img
