Why Bryan Price MUST be fired

Bryan Price has to go!

Nobody expected the Cincinnati Reds to make the playoffs this  season. It’s no surprise that they’re fighting for last place in the National League Central. They seemed destined to lose 90 plus games for the third season in a row. The problem is the team isn’t showing any improvenent. Bryan Price has been the Reds manager for every one of those losing seasons. Cincinnati Reds beat writer Hal McCoy says it’s not Price’s fault. I agree that Reds management has contributed to the problem, but I also feel that Price has played a big role in the Reds lack of improvement over the last four years.

Why do baseball managers get fired?

I’ve never understood the fan fascination with managerial moves. Most are obvious, most have little impact one way or the other. A manager isn’t fired because ownership has determined that the manager didn’t double-switch enough. This is not a sport like football where the head coach has control of a large percentage of the game on every play. Baseball is a game where a manager controls few things. Let’s face it, if your pitchers aren’t throwing strikes and your hitters aren’t hitting, there’s little a manager can do. Managers are fired when players don’t live up to expectations. I know Reds ownership picked the players, but it is Bryan Price’s job to hold them accountable for the way they play.

Reds fans are apathetic

Most Reds fans are more apathetic than anything else nowadays. That’s the scariest thing that can happen to a teams fan base at any level. Anger is fine because if your fan base is angry at least they care and will show up for games. The Reds are already eliminated from playoff contention in most fan’s minds so why bother to go? I know it’s not so they can be over-charged on parking or concessions.

Keeping up with teams like the Yankees, with their enormous tv deals, is virtually impossiable. The Yanks have the spending power to bring in what they need to win. But that has nothing to do with developing players that you draft or having a team at the Major League level that will go out and generate excitement.

Here is why Bryan Price MUST be fired

The one thing you can control as a manager is the fire that your team plays with. The Reds, under Bryan Price, fall well short in this department.I don’t usually agree with Price’s managerial moves, but the lack of intensity displayed by this team is frustrating.

That’s why Price’s time must come to an end in Cincinnati.
