    Rumor was JC was a candidate for manager a few years back but the facial hair policy at the time nixed it.

    Re: Who do you WANT as the next manager?

    Right now I'm leaning towards Ausmus. I want someone either from the minors or from outside the organization. Not a retread. After Ausmus, I'd lean towards either Sweet or Deshields. But I'd be fine with Price too...just not my first choice. I'd much rather he stay on as pitching coach.

    From the list Martinez or Price. I'd interview Larkin and O'Neill as well even though I thought either one was a crazy idea when first mentioned. If Rolen was interested, that would be intriguing.

    Someone else will emerge on the scene. This is going to be a thorough search by Walt.

    I vote Dave Martinez, with Bryan Price as a distant second.

    Speier was supposedly one of Dusty's guys. If you liked Dusty, you'd likely get more of the same from Speier.

    I voted P-Mac, even though I think the chance he gets considered is too small to be measured outside of a laboratory.

    IIRC, Mackanin re-signed with Philly. Of course if the Reds wanted him they could - and probably would - let him out of his deal
    .
    Mack is a scout with the Yankees... I believe but he is my choice.

    Re: Who do you WANT as the next manager?

    ^ No, he just signed on to be the 3rd base coach for Philly.


    I like the guy alright, and wouldn't mind seeing him interview, but I still think people overrated him tremendously based on a 41-39 dead cat bounce. He wasn't any rocket scientist (he's the one who pretty much made BP the regular clean-up hitter) but he was better than Jerry Narron, and that's just not saying much.
    "Since I've been with the Reds in 1989, we've never had a farm system this loaded," Bowden said. "If we were the New York Yankees and had unlimited dollars, we could have traded for Colon, (Jeff) Weaver, Rolen, (Cliff) Floyd, (Kenny) Rogers and Finley and gotten them all -- and still held onto our top five prospects. That's an amazing statement."

    I'd love to see Francona, but he's probably not an option.

    I could get on board with Price, and I'd like to see Rolen back as hitting, or maybe bench, coach.
