    I hope not.

    Really hope they give Larkin a shot at the job if he wants it after this season.
    1. Larkin will never manage the Reds, he wont risk the possible "what if it goes bad" that could happen, he is smarter than that.

    2. With Larkins son in the NBA right now, I doubt he would wants to be confined to a dugout for 8 months out of the year. Also he would probably be taking a pay cut.

    3. What makes you think Larkin would be a good manager?

    Didn't he just say on television that he'd like to be a manager someday?

    Joe Oliver did, but he is in minor leagues for Boston.

    I dont see Larkin coming in and being an MLB manager right off the bat.

    Glad I wasn't one of the fans at the game that waited around.

    i walked in and got my bobble head and walked out. I was on the fence in regards to hanging around. Glad I didn't wait 4 hours and then postponed.

    I unfortunately was one of the fans there... Much like how Price manages, the Reds were clueless in keeping the fans up to date what was happening. Worst experience as a fan I've ever had

    It looked like they took the tarp of the field and freshened up the lines at one point in preparation to get started. That had to be frustrating.

    The Cards might have lost Wainwright to an achilles tear tonight.

    Ouch, that hurts. I wonder if they will explore a trade now. Their top prospect Marco Gonzales is also on the DL I believe.

    Be glad you weren't a beer vendor too haha. Nothing is more frustrating than a day like yesterday. Sellout crowd that gets their early, could have been a huge day with some sun.

    Looked like on all the TVs that they had an announcement that said the game wasn't going to start until at least 3:30? Even had it on the jumbotron from time to time. Not sure about after that, its when they sent us home.
