Bryan Price will be the Reds manager again in 2016. Why am I not surprised? He had one year left on his contract, and the Reds are cheap. If you haven’t realized this by now, just go back to the end of July and see what they did. Four of the five starting pitchers from last year were traded because they were all going to demand bigger salaries.By all predictions, the Reds will not be a contender for at least another couple years. They would have had a hard time attracting anybody with a good track record to manage the Reds. It was simply easier and more economical to keep Price around.The management of the Reds said their reason for keeping Price is because he is a former pitching coach and will do the best job with the young arms that he will have to work with next year. History tells us how long it took the Astros and Cubs to become competitive when they traded their pitching staffs away like the Reds did. It has been a hundred years since the Cubs won a pennant. Hopefully, Cincinnati will recover faster than that.
