Yankees broadcaster Michael Kay:

Breaking news: sources say Yankees announcer Paul O'Neill has spoken with Reds owner Bob Castellini about the Reds' vacant managerial job.


A Columbus native, O’Neill was a fourth-round pick of the Reds in 1981 and spent parts of eight seasons with the Reds and was a member of the 1990 World Series championship team. He was traded to the Yankees following the 1992 season.

O’Neill recently finished his 12th season as a broadcaster with the Yankees’ YES Network.

Reds general manager Walt Jocketty has only confirmed that current pitching coach Bryan Price and Triple-A manager Jim Riggleman are candidates for the Reds’ manager job that was created last week when the team fired Dusty Baker.

The Cincinnati Enquirer

I think O'Neill would be a pretty good manager for my Reds. He can have a fiery temper which my Reds, or any other team needs. But for the most part, I have viewed him as the type that's reserved.

Ron Oester is another good choice for the Reds position.

Didn't he also play for the Blue Jays before joining the Yankees? Since Marge croaked how good is their management?

WLW radio personality Lance McAlister has been backing Reds pitching coach Brian Price and Reds triple A manager Jim Riggleman. I don't think either one of them is going to charge up the base and excite Reds fans as manager like Ron Oester, Barry Larkin, or Paul O'Neill would in my opinion.

Riggleman walked away from the Washington Nationals in mid season when he managed them during a contract dispute. So I think he was lucky enough to land a triple A manager position with my Reds.

As for Price, great pitching coach, but how many teams do you know has hired pitching coaches as managers? Not very many over the years.

It's also been reported that Reds former manager Dusty Baker contacted the Washington Nationals for the managing position. I would be mildly surprised if any team hires him for their manager considering his age and health. He had a stroke late last year when he was managing the Reds.

No, he went right from the Reds to the Yankees in a trade that brought Roberto Kelly to the Reds. It was know afterwards as one of the worst trades made by the Reds.

Latest update on the Paul O’Neill report

by John Fay 23 (Cincinnati Enquirer, sports)


The report that owner Bob Castellini talked to Paul O’Neill about the Reds’ managerial opening is not completely accurate.

Someone from the Reds did contact O’Neill. O’Neill would be interested if things moved further along.

But, right now, to call O’Neill a candidate for the job is a stretch.
