John Fay’s Reds Insider
“We were hoping to get it done sooner than later,” O’Brien said. “But it’s been more protracted than we thought.”
As stated, the playing time issue is believed to be the holdup. Fay believes the Reds are a better team with Aurilia and says, “to Aurilia’s credit, he never let his displeasure affect his play”.
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.
