    Another parade?! I thought Dusty was a good manager when he was here but I also thought the Reds could do better. I hoped they would have sacked/persuaded Dusty to retire after the Sox fired Tito so he could come here. But, IIRC, that was the season where had the health problems and it may have looked pretty bad to fire a guy after that. I wouldn't mind seeing Girardi here. If he's still unemployed next year, I wouldn't hesitate to use any excuse I could to drop Price and hire him. Make it worth his while. Tell him he can come here and beat those Cubbies.

    The Nats or Mets might scoop him up instantly, though he might want to take a year to recharge his batteries. If he does that, the ChiSox, Seattle, Toronto and Atlanta strike me as prime locations for him. Also, Derek Jeter might make a play for him to come back to the Marlins. I'm told they have some history together.
    Wait until the year after next year.

    He was let go, which is surprising. I could have seen Girardi deciding to move on, but I have no idea why the Yankees thought they could do better. The Yankees were supposed to be continuing a rebuild this season, and made it one game away from the World Series.
    Pretty much what I came to post. The Yankees were not meant to compete this season. Good management and young players stepping up helped them do that. Would like to see the Reds consider him should he still be available

    That's why you make him an offer he can't refuse, and throw in something nice for the Mrs.

    I dont care, Votto said of passing his friend and former teammate. Hes in the past. Bye-bye, Jay.

    I'm a little surprised. I thought he did a good job this year. Maybe management didn't like getting their butts kicked by the Astros.

    Is he a good fit for where the Reds are?

    And when he feels the world is closing in
    He turns his stereo way up high

    Mets have hired a manager already. Marlins would make some sense but Jeter's gotta history with their current manager too, ya know. And Donnie very nearly got the job succeeding Torre that went to Girardi instead.

    Maybe Cashman had the same problem I do with Girardi - his hat doesn't seem to fit his head.

    Wouldn't it be a bad look to say a guy is coming back, then fire him shortly after for a better option?

    The Cubs did it with Maddon
    ...the 2-2 to Woodsen and here it comes...and it is swung on and missed! And Tom Browning has pitched a perfect game! Twenty-seven outs in a row, and he is being mobbed by his teammates, just to the thirdbase side of the mound.

    Meh. Not as bad as firing a guy after he's made the playoffs and was within one game of the World Series. If it works, no one's going to care.

    Hire Girardi immediately. This is the big moment where the Reds can show their fans they are serious about improving the club.

    I hate to say it, but that is a perfect fit, that I never thought of. However, I wouldn't mind the Reds hiring Matheny if that happened.
    The team Matheny described several times this weekend as the team he thinks the Cardinals could be, is actually the team the Reds have become.

    I fogged on them, but that's a definite possibility.
