According to the Washington Post:

Jim Riggleman will manage again next season, just not in the major leagues. In his first on-field position since he suddenly resigned as Nationals manager last June, Riggleman will return to the dugout in 2012 to manage the Pensacola Blue Wahoos, the Class AA affiliate of the Cincinnati Reds, a person close to the situation said.

Wow, this is interesting, don’t you think?

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.

  1. He couldn’t find a bench coach job somewhere? I smell a rat, in the form of a promise made to move up to the big club next year. God forbid it’s as manager, but all signs point to him, with Bell as bench coach.

  2. Ladies and Gentlemen, your 2013 manager of the Cincinnati Reds: Jim Riggleman.
