    That's it! I knew he reminded me of some actor, but I couldn't think of who it was.

    I'd still take Price over Baker--Price has great eyes and I've always been a sucker for a guy with pretty eyes.

    Re: Report: Reds Hire Bryan Price

    There's something about Price that makes me think this is a very significant day for the modern-day Reds. I have no objective analysis that leads me to believe he's going to be a great manager, so this belief is entirely subjective. He just has some quality about him that I can't really articulate. The best analogy I can draw is in the business world when you meet someone that has the ever elusive "presence" about him/her that you know almost immediately they are going to be incredibly successful. Whenever I've seen Price in the dugout or at the mound interacting with players, he has that presence about him. If you've read Blink you'll understand what I'm talking about (it's a very thin slice). John Farrell has this too, IMO. Price reminds me of him.

    I will admit that I've always been biased towards the smart, cerebral-type in just about everything from the athletes I've liked the most (Rolen, Larkin) to the people I'm drawn to the most in the world overall. But I also know enough to know that smarts won't make someone a good coach or manager. Smarts at the expense of intuition can be a pretty bad combination. Plenty of really intelligent people have failed miserably in roles that require people leadership. But I don't think Price is one of those guys.

    I really think the Reds may have just made one of the best decisions they've ever made.

    •The Dodgers have fired bench coach Trey Hillman and advanced scout Wade Taylor, according to Jon Heyman of CBS Sports (on Twitter). Both were close with manager Don Mattingly, who said at a press conference yesterday that his return in 2014 wasn't a guarantee just because his option vested and added that he wanted his entire coaching staff to return in 2014. The dismissal of Hillman and Taylor figures to add to the tension between Mattingly and the Dodgers brass.

    Should the Reds consider hiring either Trey Hillman or Wade Taylor?

    Accurately? I'm pretty sure he'd deliver the results late or incorrectly. Or maybe he'd just send all the results home. :O)

    I would imagine, that most managers think that their first goal is to manage people...not numbers. (don't take that the wrong way...the numbers are important, but I think you've got to manage the individuals first)

    I would completely agree. I'm a "stats guy", but realize that the manager has a unique perspective that no fan has. He actually knows the players and interacts with them. That perspective gives him the ability to manage the individual, as well as their strengths and weaknesses, while considering the numbers as well.

    My guess is that the Price hire will either work out or it won't. But the overwhelming odds are that he'll end up being fired.

    Since 13 of the 15 NL jobs have turned over since mid-2010 that is a safe bet...
