As was reported a few days ago, Reds pitching coach Bryan Price interviewed with the Miami Marlins for their managerial job. Today, Mark Sheldon reports that Price is no longer in the running for that job and will remain with the Reds.
Reds pitching coach Bryan Price has withdrawn his name from consideration for the Marlins manager’s job, a person familiar with the situation said on Tuesday. Price interviewed with Miami on Friday. He will remain on the Reds coaching staff.
Clearly, while Price surely deserves his shot to manage a big league club, this is great news for the Reds. Maybe, as Chad suggested here last week, Price will be the next Reds manager after Dusty Baker.
Steve grew up in Cincinnati a die-hard fan of Sparky’s Big Red Machine. After 25 years living outside of Ohio, mostly in Ann Arbor, he returned to the Queen City in 2004. Contemporary Reds thrills: witnessing Jay Bruce’s 2010 homer and Homer Bailey’s 2013 no-hitter in person. The only place to find Steve’s thoughts of more than 280 characters about the Reds is Redleg Nation, although you can follow his tweets @spmancuso.
