    Time for a new 1st base coach

    From Marc's blog:

    From the "nice timing" department...

    SARASOTA -- Reds first base coach John Moses has decided to retire. He wants to spend more time with his family.

    The team is in the process of putting together a list of candidates, and the search will begin in-house before looking outside the organization. Just throwing it out there, but I imagine Freddie Benavides would be a strong candidate, if he's interested.

    Take it from me, nobody wants to spend more time with his family unless his wife is a mute supermodel and there is a full time nanny around. Anytime that phrase is uttered it means something else...

    I'd much rather spend time with my wife and family.

    It's everyone else I could do without, frankly.

    Wasn't Moses also our fielding coach? I would say then that Benavides would be the ideal candidate unless they don't wanna pull him from the Minors at this late juncture!

    He was the OFer's coach. Apparantly Moses will not lead the Reds to the promised land.

    Well, his timing is just wonderful.

    I find it hard to believe he just made that decision this week... ST week. Nothing like making everyone hurry around now to try and find a replacement.

    Dunn can be that bad at 1B - Maybe the REDS suggested moving WMP there and he thought this is way too hard
