Re: Possible Managerial Candidates
I don't see any candidates mentioned that are any better than Dusty. I wouldn't consider Riggleman after he quit on the Nationals. I heard/read some things somewhere about Acta having problems getting along with a lot players while managing. No idea if that's completely true but he's not made either the Nationals or Indians any better while there. I wouldn't consider TLR unless Duncan came with him. But I think TLR has burned too many bridges along the way to get another manager job. Torre and Pinella are done managing so you can forget about them.
If Dusty retired I would give Speier a shot. It would give the Reds continuity. The coaching staff would probably stay intact being mainly Price I would want to keep. If you go outside they are going to bring in their guys and you would probably lose Price who I think has done a tremendous job in Cincy.
