    Maybe he means because he played with Pete Rose and Davey Concepcion?

    It sounds like Larkin's public interest in the job has rubbed some of the front office the wrong way.

    So did Ted Power, so wouldn't be last connection.

    Out of the list given on poll, I would pick J. Girardi. A manager w / experience plus championship experience would get the nod from me over any new, fist time manager. I like Larkin a lot, he is an old school / true Red but no experience in managing would make me question. We have witnessed how that can work out, or not. Larkin imo would be an excellent batting coach and/or asst. manager/bench coach.
    One question in my mind would be is how much is the Reds cheap, incompetent front office willing to pay ? ... One gets what they pay for . I realize this is a small market club but I am a believer in "having to spend money to make money / wins". Take a chance or stay in the cellar.
    An entire new front office is what is really needed.
