07:22 AM ET 10.10 | While Yankees broadcaster Michael Kay made some waves Tuesday evening, tweeting, "Breaking news: sources say Yankees announcer Paul O'Neill has spoken with Reds owner Bob Castellini about the Reds' vacant managerial job," Reds fans may also be interested in the idea of Barry Larkin on the bench. [Larkin] has not heard from the Reds about the manager opening. He would be interested if the club calls. "I'd certainly talk to them," he said. Larkin managed the Brazilian team in the World Baseball Classic this spring. "I really enjoyed that," he said. "I would like to manage a team with more talent someday." ... The fact that no other names have surfaced makes me think that Bryan Price is very likely to get the job. Reds general manager Walt Jocketty and owner Bob Castellini will be in Arizona later this week.

Who ever wrote this don't know what there talking about, O Neil might have contacted the Reds but thats it........Reds said yesterday they have only approached pitching coach Bill Price about the job......Reds know they will lose im after next yr. if he isn't the coach since his contract is up and teams already have approached the Reds about talking to him.

How could the Reds even think of hiring either one of them to manage their big league club with no managerial experience. Bothe of them need to do their apprentice in the minors and then maybe somebody would consider them as a big league manager material.

You must not have been a Packer fan in the 70's. We just kept running out star players from the "glory years" and expecting them to be good coaches. Was an awful time to be a Packer fan here at that time.

Maybe they want to copy the Cardinal model of hiring a former player with no managing experience. Success breeds copycats in sports.

It's not a bad model when you don't have to manage a perennial loser like the Cubs.

Unfortunately, this glorified turd has been the beneficiary of the latest PED fallout. Stick him in the HOF, put the word "gambling" on his plaque and keep him banned from the game.

Whay has one got to do with the other? Yes Pete Rose bet on baseball and yes what he did was wrong but that was as a manager not a player. He should not be re-instated and allowed back in the game but he should be in the HOF more than these roid boys.

So you have proof he bet only as a manager? He was a manager/player for a while. Betting on baseball is far worse than roids anyway.

Ummm......I just said the exact same thing.

But you said it differenter.

The Reds Have no one on their coaching staff or candidate for manger of the reds named Bill Price. BRIAN Price is their pitching coach, and as of now the leading candidate for the manager's job.

Perhaps once Butt Selig finally steps down in 2015, the new commissioner is announced, he might reinstate Pete Rose as a player and eligible for HOF. The opportunity for Rose to officially see his induction into Hall should that happen is fading. In 2015 Rose will be 74. If Rose is later reinstated I'm sure he would be banned from accepting a job in MLB. Any records as a manager should not be included with HOF stats.

Nope. He's out. Forever. As it should be. Wrap your head around it and never speak of his reinstatement again. It isn't going to happen. Ever. Nor should it.
