As the Red Sox look to fill its pitching coach opening vacated by Dana LeVangie, they appear to be looking into former Reds manager Bryan Price.
Red Sox have spoken to Bryan Price about pitching coach opening. Makes a lot of sense.— Tim Brown (@TBrownYahoo) October 20, 2019
Price replaced Dusty Baker as the Reds manager in 2014 and went 279-387 before he was fired after the start of the 2018 season.
Before that, Price served as pitching coach for the Mariners from 2001-2006, winning the Pitching Coach of the Year award in 2001. He then joined the Diamondbacks staff at the same position until 2009 and joined as pitching coach for the Reds following the '09 season.
Price certainly has an accomplished background as a pitching coach, even though his time as manager yielded a few rants directed at reporters and umpires. If he can help right the ship for the Red Sox pitching staff, a crew that probably deserves most of the blame for Boston's demise in 2019, then I'm sure Red Sox fans will be all for it.
