    Not that it matters much, he's going to be here next year anyway
    Kind of depressing when barely squeaking above .500 is almost a guarantee for a management position, isn't it?

    You are correct. He's still arbitration eligible, and hopefully the Reds non-tender him.
    I dont care, Votto said of passing his friend and former teammate. Hes in the past. Bye-bye, Jay.

    I hope they don't even have a thought in their mind about tendering him.

    I think it's kind of depressing when a guy does what appears to be a pretty good job and people don't even want to give him consideration because he's an "interim" guy and they think they need some "name" guy like Joe Girardi because he's got a football mentality. Like the difference between the Reds being good and bad this year was how much the manager screamed. Give me a break.

    TMBS, I support a full search and interview process before any decision is made.

    I wonder if those same people ride the bus to work because they had a car that broke down once.
    a super volcano of ridonkulous suckitude.

    I simply don't have access to a "cares about RBI" place in my psyche. There is a "mildly curious about OBI%" alcove just before the acid filled lake guarded by robot snipers with lasers which leads to the "cares about RBI" antechamber though. - Nate

    They need to do that....they need to do this the right way.


    If they really feel he's their guy.....make sure.




    However, I don't think he's their first choice coming out of the gate.

    I would have no problem if they made him manager (one year contract, only) - as long as they perform an extensive interviewing process before hand.
    And, no, a big name is not the answer. Dusty Baker is technically a big name.

    If it's Dusy Baker, I will move.

    the big problem I have with the way that the last two hirings were handled was the fact that they didn't do a real search. Plus the fact that Lindner was cheap.

    I don't think that'll be a problem this time.

    I don't either...and I don't think they'll fart around with it either...I think it will be priority #1 once the season concludes...

    Not fair to Mackanin to leave him hanging.....no matter what their decision is.
