    I would think having Robbie in OUR organization would be a positive thing. Maybe we should step up.

    He worked wonders for the Expos/Nats organization.

    I don't think a job in the dugout would work for sure, I always had issues with his game management and his inability to motivate some players......but I would think Bob's desire to focus on tradition might make it a positive move to have him in a position somewhere.

    Quiet, you. Wayne is looking for a right fielder and he's just the right age.

    He did a pretty good job in San Francisco and Baltimore though.

    Seriously after it took the Reds so long to recognize his number and retire it, and as long as it took for Robby to accept the apology I wouldn't be surprised to see him invited to the Reds camp someday (this spring?) He was the best player when Cast was in HS and likely was one of his faves.

    He's not a bad man to honor within your organization and his 50 years in the game at almost every capacity doesn't exactly scream out incompetent.

    He had a nice run in DC in 05, too. I'd love to see him back in the Reds organization in some way.

    Would love to see Frank back in the Reds fold. Probably more likely that he will take a position with MLB.

    I'd love to see him back with the organization in some capacity...not manager but in some sort of talent evaluation or consultant deal.

    I think bringing FR in would be a smart move for the team both baseball and PR wise.
    Nothing to see here. Please disperse.
