    Hoping TLR can be persuaded.

    I voted for O'neill. Always was shocked and amazed at the way he not only handled the pressure in New York , but actually thrived on it. Big decision but the guy has always impressed me.

    What Bronson said about Price is very persuasive, but i think this team needs someone from the outside.

    There are a lot of guys on this list that I would veto instantly, if I had such a power, and to me, avoiding them is the most important thing that the Reds do. But then, of the number of candidates I wouldn't veto, and whom I'd be happy to welcome as the Reds' new manager, Martinez is the guy who interests me marginally more than any other.

    As intense as O'Neill was on the field, I'm sure he noticed that he didn't fully thrive while playing for Lou Piniella and that he became a living legend playing for Joe Torre. O'Neill liked to scream at his bat and glove, but I wouldn't assume he thinks screaming at people nets you results.

    Re: Who do you WANT as the next manager?

    Voted for Price (I've been persuaded) because there is not one chance in Hades TLR or Davey, or Paul, or (I hope) Riggleman will get the job. That said, I'm not sure if it's the right move, but all those former Reds being considered is fool's gold. I'd prefer a seasoned manager, but I mentioned who would be better than Dusty earlier. I still feel the same way. As bad as that is.

    Depends on the person. Mike Francesa said the other day that he once personally observed Torre screaming at Robinson Cano. But i doubt he ever screamed at Bernie Williams, a very laid back guy who O'Neill appeared to be best buddies with. I doubt Torre ever screamed at O'Neill either. But there are some folks who respond to screaming.

    It kind of worries me about this team that players like Votto, Choo, and Bruce are types that, to me, don't seem like players that respond to screaming/other motivational tactics by a manager. I'm not intending for this to be a slight against them, but they seem to have their own way of playing and would prefer to "manage" themselves and be left alone. I'm not in the clubhouse, this is just my perception.

    Re: Who do you WANT as the next manager?

    Call me selfish, I just want a manager who is smart and not "old-school". I don't think we need a wholesale tone change, we just need to stop protecting players from their failures and undervaluing and poorly utilizing our best players.
    Games are won on run differential -- scoring more than your opponent. Runs are runs, scored or prevented they all count the same. Worry about scoring more and allowing fewer, not which positions contribute to which side of the equation or how "consistent" you are at your current level of performance.

    Thom could be the pitching coach,right?


    Price deserves a shot at this. I believe he could be a good manager but he's a risk since he never has managed. Has he managed at any level or in the winter leagues?
