    TLR

    Would he come out of retirement to manage this team if Bob and Walt asked him?

    I always hated TLR, but at this point, I could probably stand him better than the current situation.

    Why?

    He'd do something everyday that would cause thread creations and mental meltdowns too.

    Re: TLR

    I might have to abandon my beloved Reds if TLR came on board. I've been a life long Reds fan for over 40 years. My loathing of TLR is that strong. Dead serious.
    2014 predictions:
    99-63 WS champs (Cards take 2nd WC, Mil 3rd, Pit 4th, Chi 5th)
    Bruce/Votto neck and neck MVP race (neither takes it)
    Bailey CYA winner
    Hamilton ROY & GG

    Re: TLR

    No TLR. please. I'd rather have Francona and any number of other possibilities. Larusa would drive RZ nuts, too, but if he brings Duncan with him...nah.

    There's not enough bandwidth for me to list every human being (and some animals, including my dog) that I would prefer as the Reds manager over TLR.

    No manager will make people happy. As WOY said TLR, Francona, Torre, Maddon, doesn't matter, hell will be unleashed upon them by this place.

    Championships for MY teams in my lifetime:
    Cincinnati Reds - 75, 76, 90
    Chicago Blackhawks - 10, 13
    University of Kentucky - 78, 96, 98, 12
    Cincinnati Bengals - None
    Chicago Bulls - 91, 92, 93, 96, 97, 98

    So don't have a manager. Let the coaches handle things.

    IIRC, Francona wasn't afraid to split the lefties in his time.

    Re: TLR

    I remember how hated Pete Rose was in New York by the Mets fans in the 70's but if he would have become a Met they would have hero worshiped him. I would almost bet the same would come true if LaRussa Came here and won.LOL almost anyway.

    I'm involved with a tech start up that has a social gaming project in the works. Everyone hates Zynga because they're the top dogs in that realm and use that position to bully. I have fundamental disagreements with how they treat the business, their customers, and employees. At the same time, I'd have absolutely no problem with them buying us out and me being able to take my 15% and hang out drinking fancy coffee.

    I don't want to win the TLR way. I would be embarressed to be a Reds fan, no matter how much they won.
