Read the underlying article from Jon Heyman. Has more detail. Here’s the gist:
“The Cincinnati Reds have gotten a quick start on their managerial search, and have interviewed ex-Yakees manager Joe Girardi in addition to interim manager Jim Riggleman and ex-Red Sox manager John Farrell, with ex-Tigers manager Brad Ausmus and Giants farm director David Bell also high on their list.
The strong belief for now is that the next Reds manager will come from that high-profile quintet, though they also have interviewed three other in-house candidates — coaches Billy Hatcher, Freddie Benavides and Pat Kelly — who they like, and it’s possible someone else could make the list.”
Steve grew up in Cincinnati as 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. He has resumed a first-person love affair with the Cincinnati Reds and is a season ticket holder at Great American Ball Park.
