"Man, the pitch looks fast, even in slow motion." Thom Brennaman on Chapman's fastball.
So is Mack Jenkins going to be the new pitching coach or will it be an outside hire?
"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 think it would be funny if opening day includes Cozart batting second and about 4 sac bunts. Maybe I missed it, but I feel like we don't really know anything about Price's managing style.
And who is the pitching coach now? I'm sure Price will still have some influence, but doesn't this leave another gaping hole?
No complaints here. I think Price will do a good job.
So now we turn our attention to the vacant pitching and likely hitting coach positions.
"It's still a long way to the top if we want to rock'n'roll, but at least they dumped the tuba player."
I think it was the expected move. It'd be nice if we can find a pitching coach as good to replace him.
