This one was done with John Popovich from Channel 9 in Cincinnati, and is 14 minutes long.
Price talks again about a group of players working with coaches to help set an example. He mentions a group of "iconic" players to lead the way. He names Votto, *Phillips, and Bruce as those iconic players. Also names Ludwick as a locker room leader.
He goes on in good depth on some things in this interview. Price compares Latos to breaking out into a Clemens type of dominant pitcher. Also talks up Homer and Cueto.
Says he wants Chapman issue settled before spring, so he knows where he stands.
Mentions repeated mistakes several times with base running and other issues, as an example of where things went wrong this year.
Overall a very candid and thoughtful interview if you have the time to watch. Please note the camera work may drive you insane, but the audio is fine.
* He does go on to say that some player moves may be needed to allow the team to grow, and to acquire other players.
He mentions here: "How do we make it easier for a player to go up to another player and say 'Hey, I think there's a better way of doing this'".
I think you can see a goal here of developing and determining a winning approach and then setting that as the platform for everyone to communicate through. Pretty interesting stuff.
