I've been thinking about this for a couple of days and thought I'd start a new thread. What will the Reds coaching staff look like next year? Who stays, who shouldn't stay.
What got me thinking about this was wondering how the pitching coach slot will play out next year. Can Vern Ruehle come back, is his cancer pretty bad? Should Tom Hume get the position fulltime or are we better with him as the bullpen coach?
What about Bucky Dent? Chris Chambliss? I think we need to lock him up for a long, long time. I'm not sure about the others.
Here's the whole staff:
Code:7 Bucky Dent Bench Coach 32 Billy Hatcher First Base Coach 55 Mark Berry Third Base Coach 58 Vern Ruhle Pitching Coach 49 Chris Chambliss Hitting Coach 47 Tom Hume Interim Pitching Coach 43 Lee Tunnell Interim Bullpen Coach 72 Mike Stefanski Bullpen Catcher
