2015 Reds, 1990 Score style: Jim Riggleman


The hiring of Jim Riggleman as the third base coach during the off-season was seen by most Reds fans as an insurance policy for second-year manager Bryan Price. After a disappointing 4th place finish last year, Price has done nothing to redeem himself in 2015, and many thought Riggleman would be the new skipper by mid-season (or shortly thereafter, to save face during the All-Star events held in the Queen City).

Surprisingly, Riggleman is still stationed in the third base coaching box, and Price is still calling the shots from the dugout despite sitting in last place behind the Milwaukee Brewers, who shouldn’t even be in the same league.

Riggleman managed the Padres from 1992-1994, the Cubs from 1995-1999, the Mariners in 2008, and the Nationals from 2009-2011. While with the Cubs, he twice received votes in Manager of the Year voting, and took the team to a 2nd place finish in 1998.
