    Bowa negotiations break down

    After 10-15 unreturned phone calls to my college buddy the sports agent, he finally returned my call. I ask him what was up with the Bowa rumor, he said he would call me back. When he did, he said that his friend told him that Bowa wanted a all new coaching staff, he did not want to keep Hume and Gullett especially! He also wanted a three year deal, the Reds wanted him to finish out the season and one more year. However my friend did tell me that Jim Leyland is not out the picture yet....Leyland is telling his agent to get talks going again with the Reds. Pittsburgh is only a couple of games below .500 and their front office has no reason to make a move. Leyland really wants back in baseball, especially in the NL.....even to manage the Reds!

    If the Rumor was true about Bowa and I have no reason to think why it was not true, what was Bowa thinking???? Why not take the job, we have some talent. Any job he takes will be a rebuilding job. Why not Cincy? We have a great baseball town!

    When was the last time the Reds got beat by a three run homer from an American League pitcher? Embarassing! To dead centerfield no less!

    That has nothing to do with Bowa becoming the Reds manager.

    This was more predictable than Dan O'Brien sounding like a robot every time he opens his mouth.

    Well, I kinda do. We try to stay on topic around here, especially when there is a game thread just a click away.
    What if this wasn't a rhetorical question?

    All models are wrong. Some of them are useful.

    I heard Pamela Anderson was in negotiations with Dan O'Brien, John Allen, and Carl Lindner. But they broke down, because George Grande insistance she wear a bra.

    This isn't true because it would violate MLB hiring pratices in regards to minorities. Policies the Reds have publicly endorsed in the past.

    You can hire an interim, but not a permanent, Sounds bogus to me
    The lowest acceptable payroll amount for ownership to show they are not greedy pigs is 15 million more than they are currently paying. No matter what that currently is.

    Earlier Dr.John-son said that Bowa wanted a all Phillie coaching staff. That sounded fishy and gave him away. Be creative in your lying, why don't you?

    Approaching Sunday. This was never going to happen. What perfect timing for the negotiations to break down.
    I hope it's never sunny in Philly again.
