    I think it will and should be Barry Larkin. Much like the Yankees did with Boone. I think the role of the manager has changed. More about managing ego's and communicating with players. The coaching part of it is becoming less important. You can surround individuals like Barry Larkin with good coaches to help with the X and O's.

    I want them to conduct a full search and interview process and hire the best person who comes out of that. If it's Barry Larkin it would be kind of cool, but I don't want them to hire him just because he is Barry Larkin.

    Larkin already has a good relationship with a lot of the younger players.

    I want someone that is a little more forward thinking. Your CF and SS don't have to always hit 1-2 in the order. It's not that complicated to put together the best lineup possible to score runs. They have computers that do that for you now. Yes Price continued to bat Hamilton and Peraza at the top of the lineup.

    It maybe time to give up on Peraza. His strike zone is terrible. He swings at everything. He probably leads the majors in swinging at pitches that bounce.

    Should Barry Larkin take over as manager at Louisville? Would that help him build his managerial resume?

    Ausmus is supposedly an analytics guy.

    If that was the case, he should've been there already. My personal opinion is Larkin would rather have the freedom as a "consultant" and jump right into the majors. He may feel he doesn't have anything to learn at the lower levels.

    The new manager should be Ken Broo. He has all the answers, and most of all it will keep him off of 700 WLW

    Don't always agree with him but I like Broo.
