So Miley has until at least June 9 to turn this around - because after I wow them in my interview I will be the new manager.

    And Casey will be batting 6th.
    My interview is also on the 9th...

    and Wily Mo will be batting 6th while Casey's butt is on the pine.

    Things are pretty desperate when you want to hire Larry Bowa as your manager.
    The Rally Onion wants 150 fans before Opening Day.

    He might be able to still catch...

    and perhapps pitch better than a few un-named "pitchers" on the current roster.
    Nothing to see here. Please disperse.

    I agree Team Clark, Pena would be my first choice. But in reality I think the Reds should start by firing Gullett. If a message is to be sent to this team it must be the right one. The pitching staff is the most horrific thing about this team. Fire the Sherriff and tell Miley he's next if he can't get this team turned around.
    ...And this one belongs to the Reds!!

    that right Wheelhouse couldn't have said it better myself. I'd give Graves his outright release for starters. A professional "disappointed" with the fans who pay his 6 mil salary cuz he blows a 7 run lead in the 9th. Get him outta here!!!!

Lousy management and coaching in the last five years has fostered a cloistered and ignorant team, that can do nothing but "love each other" in tough times. This clubhouse needs to be broken up and re-molded, not catered to. Can you believe Danny Graves was considered a team leader and invited to a dinner by Dan O as such? C'mon, he's a lousy pitcher with a PR problem. And please, Danny was not the beginning of all that: Aaron Boone's profanity and profane getures toward the fans when he was in a slump (and I'll bet there were some five year olds in eyesight of that) was a telltale sign of the effite '99 team. All heart and no professionalism. If they aren't being cheered and praised constantly, they get knocked of the rails. Weak. PURGE THEM.
    I agree with all of this--ALL of it--with the exception of "Miley is a good manager". I was all in favor of making Miley the manager, even when Boone was hired. However, based on what we've seen, I'm starting to think he's in over his head. He seems clueless.

    It's not all or even mostly his fault, but when a team is this bad, the manager usually gets fired. And if the new Reds manager is Bowa, well . . . at least it should be more entertaining than the train wreck we've been watching.

    I don't think this is gonna happen, but I'd like it if it did. Something needs to happen to give these guys a kick in the pants. Bowa would definately do that. However, Bowa is a short term manager because he tends to alienate his players after a couple of years. Heck, go for it, we can't get much worse. By the time Bowa wears out his welcome, maybe Pinella or somebody is available.

    I'd rather lose 110 games that have Larry Bowa manage out team. He's a pea brain. We need a motivational leader with a at small sized fruit brain....and no it need not be chiquita product

    Re: Miley and Coaching staff will be fired Sunday

    just get rid of Miley, the dude obviously isn't doing anything to motivate the guys, when was the last time we won a series? I guarentee the reds would have had a better record over the last month if I was the manager!
    reasons why:
    I would have not played Rich Aurillia forever!
    I would have made sure Wily Mo Pena was in, especially when they already had aurillia in and had felipe playing second or freel in the of!

    Re: RUMOR: Miley and Coaching staff will be fired Sunday

    At this point, regardless if the rumor is true or not, I'm all for change. It has been made blatantly apparent that the current formula isn't working, and when that happens the manager is the first fall guy.
    Benzinger backing and calling! And the 1990 world championship series belongs to the Cincinnati Reds!

    I agree. Pena could be a great one for the Reds.
    Did I earlier truly say that bowa would be OK? I must be suffering from "two many embarassing losses parasites!
