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!
