Cincinnati Reds chief operating officer John Allen flew to Denver and met with manager Dave Miley on Sunday to discuss the direction of the struggling franchise.
Calling the team’s performance this season “unacceptable,” Allen said he didn’t speak directly to the players, but acknowledged changes could be on the way if things don’t turn around soon.
“Certainly the status-quo end result is unacceptable,” Allen said before Sunday’s game against Colorado. “I’m not going to pinpoint names, but I don’t think any of us find this acceptable. We have some very professional players in this locker room that I know are in a lot of misery right now.”
The Reds come home after today’s game, yet Allen felt the need to go out to Denver? Could this be Miley’s last game as manager?
I’ve been a Reds fan since the late ’60’s, with my luck of being able to attend plenty of games at Riverfront during the BRM era. I was sitting in the Green Seats in the OF when Pete came home in ’84 and was in the Red seats when Glenn Braggs reached over the fence in ’90 to beat the Pirates. I have had many favorites from Jim Maloney to Johnny Bench, Barry Larkin, Adam Dunn, and Jay Bruce.
