Dusty Baker Out

As of about 730AM this morning the AP is reporting Dusty Baker will not return as Reds' manager. I haven't seen if this is due to resignation or termination. I guess this is as good of place as any to start discussing new managerial candidates. I think my vote for now is Bryan Price.

He seems to be well respected on the team and he has done a masterful job with our pitching staff. He's not a "name" coach though

Other "free agent" managers include: Joe Girardi, Ozzie Guillen, and Charlie Manuel. Obviously there are plenty of other names out there but these are "Big Free Agent" names. . I'm unsure if Banana Bob is willing to make that sort of splash at manager again given the lack of playoff results.
