Phillies Reportedly Hiring Bryan Price as Pitching Coach

David Kohl-USA TODAY Sports

The former Reds manager is apparently coming to Philly to join Joe Girardi’s staff:

Matt Breen, Corey Seidman, and Jim Salisbury reported Wednesday that Price was the frontrunner for the gig.

Price spent more than a decade as a pitching coach with Seattle, Arizona, and Cincinnati before taking the Reds’ managerial position in 2014 following Dusty Baker’s departure.

Wrote Breen:

Girardi hired Price last summer to be Team USA’s pitching coach, but Girardi left his post as that team’s manager earlier this month to pursue a return to the majors. Around the same time, Price turned down Arizona’s offer to be its pitching coach.

Cincinnati’s pitching staff ranked third and fourth in National League ERA in Price’s final two years as pitching coach in 2012 and 2013. His Diamondbacks staffs in 2007 and 2008 posted the NL’s fourth- and fifth-best ERAs, and his Mariners staff in 2001 finished with the best mark in the American League.

Sounds good. Let’s get started. Let’s rock and roll.

Price also went on a fantastic rant a few years back:

    hopefully this guy is a better pitching coach than he was a manager.

      Signing Gerrit Cole would help the starting rotation immensely, as well as signing Aroldis Chapman to the bullpen.

    So…nothing at all on what I would consider the biggest sports middle finger to a player that finished around 11:58 PM last night?
