Reds sign their top draft choice and MLB number 2 selection overall. Some serious dollars involved for a 17 year old.

Castillo is pitching great ! Votto Number 26 ! Gennett 15 th of the season! He was a smart pickup.

Cozart will be starting at shortstop for the NL team in the All-Star game in this first appearance. And becomes the first Reds shortstop to start the game since Barry Larkin in 2000.

Votto makes it as a bench player at first.

Votto now owes Cozart a donkey!!

Price needs to go. This team lacks energy. Price looks lost on the bench. This team needs a fire lit under their butts. Completely outclassed so far in their series vs. Washington.

While I do believe that Price hasn't had much of a real chance based on the talent that he's been dealt, I do believe that they need a change in leadership. I was honestly shocked when they brought him back this season, but if you're going for a full rebuild, winning games isn't the most important thing.

With that said, there's not a lot a manager can do when the starting pitcher gives up 5+ runs in the first 2-3 innings every game.

Well the Reds are on pace to lose only 95 games this season. Their magic number to elimination is 52. Maybe they can mathematically stay in the pennant race until just after Labor Day.

The good news is that the Reds have a better home attendance than the division leading Cleveland Indians :

Barry Larkin !
Great memory on your part. From almost two years ago:

The "Barry Larkin To Manage Reds" speculation heated up Wednesday with a column by baseball insider Ken Rosenthal of FOX Sports.

Rosenthal, who's right a lot more than times than he's wrong, doesn't claim to know that Bryan Price is on his way out and Larkin is on his way in. But Rosenthal says this:
Talk at the All-Star break that Larkin could replace Price before the end of the season proved unfounded. But Larkin in recent months has surveyed former Reds teammates about whether they would join his coaching staff if he became manager, sources said.

It could happen sooner rather than later. Reds owner Bob Castellini backed Price at the All-Star break, but that was when the Reds were only eight games under .500 (39-47). Since then, the team has lost almost two-thirds of its games (13-25) and now they're 20 games under .500 (52-72), tied for last place and 27.5 games out of first.

It doesn't get much worse than that.
Castellini responded to the report by saying Price is safe for the rest of the year, but he said he would evaluiate the manager's situation for 2016. Price has one more year on his contract.

Rosenthal says:
The question for the Reds [is] if they want Price to remain their manager through [their rebuilding] phase, or if they prefer a fresh hire. Larkin, who managed Brazil in the most recent World Baseball Classic and currently serves the Reds as a roving instructor, would be the obvious and perhaps only choice for a new manager.

It doesn't seem to matter that Larkin has no big-league managing or coaching experience. Larkin is a hometown hero in the Pete Rose-class - a Silverton native and Moeller High grad who played his whole career with the Reds, won a World Series ring in 1990, became a Hall of Famer and was honored - with Rose, Joe Morgan and Johnny Bench - as one of the Reds' "Franchise Four" at the All-Star Game here last month.

Price has to be done. Today is a microcasium of his decision making process. Bailey was okay through 6, but had given up 8 hits and 4 runs (2 earned) including 2 in the 6th. So, he sends him back out for the 7th in a 4-2 ballgame. Walks the leadoff batter and that should've been it...but doesn't get him until 2 more hits, so he goes from a quality start to a disaster and another loss.

Tough luck for the Reds to have both Feldman and Cozart hurt at the trade deadline. Might still see them moved at the Waiver deadline though.

They did a 20 year old who is hitting .370 in Rookie ball and a 4th outfielder in Scott Van Slyke (who has good power) in exchange for Tony Cingrani, so it wasn't all for not

Bryan Price to manage Reds in 2018 as Cincy picks up his option. I guess this proves the Reds
have no intentions to contend.

I'm honestly stunned that they would bring back Price. I'm assuming that they feel like they are still over a year away from actually contending.

To be fair, they had a lot of players take positive steps forward and that's all you can ask out of a manager of a bad club. They have to get one or two solid starters on short deals and then try and move them at the deadline.

It would've helped if Descalfani and Finnegan would have been healthy. They are likely 5-10 wins better with those 2 regularly starting.

My mind is blown that they are bringing Price back, once they are in contention to start competing for a playoff spot again they'll need to make an upgrade.

Price is terrible, I'm about to find a new team to root for. Why bring back a manager that doesn't know how to manage a game.
