The Reds are deep into the process of hiring their next manager, and Bill Lack and I discuss every angle of the ongoing hiring process. We also answered your questions during a segment of “Viewer Mail,” including a comparison of Reds owners past and present.

    Ryu should be the main target for the Reds this offseason. As long as he’s healthy, he’s a borderline ace. Definitely would be their #1 and should be within their price range. I would do 3 yr/ 45-50 mil. No reason they shouldn’t be able to do that.

      The problem with him is injury. This year 82 innings, 2 years ago 4 or 5 innings, last year 126+- innings.
      If you think he is healthy, it is a great signing.

    1. Go Rockies, Beat the &*^(^ Brewers.
    2 Does not matter what the Reds do, you still love them, like I do. So frustrating.
    3. While Marge was bad off the field, other owner given a free space (see dodgers), she also had the highest payroll in the NL a couple of years.
    4. I do not see a lot of Yelich getting traded this off season, no one like Mia this year.
    5. Thanks for the podcasts, listened to all of them (that I saw) this year.
    6. If Billy is utilized correctly? When have the Reds done this. If he is cheap, then a 4th outfielder as a defensive replacement is fine.

    Let’s face it, the managerial search is a nonsense just Homer to the bullpen, the outfield rotation is over, positive momentum and winning culture. They have already decided how the manager will be.

    If the Reds name Riggleman as Mgr after conducting what at least looks like a real search, I’ll be even more frustrated and disappointed than if they would have just promoted him at some point with no search.
