    My main worry with Price, as a former pitching coach, is that there DOES occasionally need to be a mentality of "we've got 161 more of these left to play" when you're talking about being responsible for hitting and fielding issues (things that don't get fixed with a mechanical tweak or an extra bullpen session) as well.

    I'm confident, though, that a guy as smart as he seems should be able to understand this difference.
    I'd say if you know this, Price knows this.

    I don't think you can assume he does know this. Some people are like the hammers who only see the world as nails. Never assume self-awareness.

    Great hire, probably one of the best moves this administration has done, not much else to say about it. Just hope we can fill his former position with someone even close to as good.

    More in depth stuff on Aroldis and Phillips from Bryan Price. All positive stuff:

    Sounds like he'd prefer keeping Phillips. Of course that would involve Phillips following the new team concept.
