The Reds have hired Lou Piniella as a consultant – senior advisor to baseball operations. Pinella managed the Reds from 1990-92 and compiled a 255-231 record those three years. Piniella managed for 23 seasons. His teams made the postseason seven times, including winning the World Series with the Reds in 1990. In case you were wondering, Piniella (72) hasn’t managed since 2010.
