The Price is Right?
The Cincinnati Reds have named their new manager. Bryan Price, who has been Cincinnati’s pitching coach since 2010, will replace Dusty Baker in the dugout. This is Price’s first managerial assignment; he was previously the pitching coach for the Seattle Mariners and the Arizona Diamondbacks.
More changes are coming for the Reds. They need a new pitching coach (obviously), and Brook Jacoby is probably on his way out as hitting coach. The Brandon Phillips trade rumors will start amping up any day now, and a solution must be found for the lack of offense at third base and left field. Will Shin-Soo Choo return to the Queen City in 2014, or will he cash in for a major payday from a larger market?
This is going to be a fun off-season to watch.
