    Let's revisit this after Chapman's first appearance of 2014.

    I was hoping you'd come around.

    Arroyo said he was a numbers guy. Yada, yada, yada. He is now Theo Beane Maddon.

    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."

    They're also going to save a fairly significant chunk of change after next season. I expect Price will be working for near bottom-scale salary. I imagine that helped his case tremendously, given that they'll still be paying Baker next year.

    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?

    Agreed. I think that managers have a lot more downside potential than upside.

    Hiring my dog would have made the team more SABR than Baker.

    Wonder if those numbers can help them not crap the bed when the pressure's on?

    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.

    I haven't been able to find anything to back up your impression -- and I've been researching for all of 10 minutes now on The Google!

    I imagine Mack Jenkins will be promoted to pitching coach and a new assistant pitching coach will be hired.

    I think it was the expected move. It'd be nice if we can find a pitching coach as good to replace him.
