    I'm not saying it doesn't matter. I was just responding to the comment that Price was not a "material upgrade" from Dusty. I actually think a large part of the manager's role is just not to do stupid stuff. But that's from another thread.

    Just talked to Jay Bruce, who is extremely excited about Bryan Price's hiring by the #Reds

    It seems that players are more excited at the prospect of Price being manager than they were sad that Dusty got fired.

    I think you're seeing what you want to see there. There's no indication that's true.

    I'm generally happy with this hire although I'll admit I'm more excited about Dusty being gone.

    The words were carefully chosen, but I didn't think any Red came out saying Bakers' firing was a mistake. They seemed to say they liked Dusty and it was too bad.

    For Price, at least the pitchers seem to be turning cartwheels. And now with Bruce saying this, it seems Price's hiring is being met positively by position players.

    It's about
    the ball,
    the bat,
    the mitt,
    the bases,
    and the fans

    I'm happy with this hire. I think Price will do well in his new role. I just hope that the front office gives him the additional resources he needs to do his job well and doesn't stand pat.

    That's pretty standard

    “It’s very similar to what everyone else talks about: Being aggressive, working ahead and staying ahead in the count, composure, preparation and accountability,” he said. “The last one is the hardest. When you don’t succeed, it’s hard to own your own failure and not look for other places to blame.

    “That’s real hard. Character is hard to find. We really try to make sure the starters understand their obligation to pitch innings. That’s one thing we’ve impressed upon them wherever we’ve been. Relief guys aren’t supposed to be in 80 games a year. And when they are, it’s because the starting rotation isn’t getting the job done.”

    “Bryan is a great communicator,” Bailey said. “In communication, there’s two parts — give and take. He’s probably one of the very, very best at that. Another thing about him — I wish more people in this world were like this — but he sees the problem and he addresses the problem. There’s not a whole lot of guessing. He’s very hard-working.

    “There was never a time when we went in meeting and you came out uncertain.”

    I get the eventual blame or credit,” Baker said. “But usually, it’s a decision both of us made. Sometimes, I supersede. But I depend on my coaches. I don’t think you’re a good manager when you micromanage.”

    The final calls are Baker’s. The two don’t always agree.

    That could be. Sometimes when a beloved manager is fired there is a lot of gnashing of teeth and crying about the firing. Especially a manager who was supposedly as popular with the players as Dusty was. But they kind of had the same reaction that I did: That's too bad but we're moving on. Arroyo and Bruce seem to be very big fans of Price.

    This is not necessarily an indictment on Dusty but perhaps the players are welcoming the change.

    I have no opinion on Berry, but they could always move him into the front office to count paper clips.
