Mon Oct 115:09Reds looking for manager after 4th straight 90-loss season
CINCINNATI (AP) — The Reds' worst start since the Great Depression led them to make the first managing change of the season, firing Bryan Price after a 3-15 beginning . They ended with their fourth straight 90-loss season, unsure who will be the next manager.Interim Jim Riggleman led the Reds to a 64-80 mark . He's one of several in-house candidates being interviewed by Dick Williams, the president of baseball operations, and his staff. They're also considering outside candidates and plan to hire someone by the end of October."I thought Jim has handled this as professionally as anyone," Williams said. "He has been extremely cooperative and done a very nice job of stepping into this role knowing that there would be a search at the end."Dusty Baker led the Reds to three 90-win seasons from 2010-13, their best showing since the days of the Big Red Machine, but he was fired for failing to get the Reds deep into the playoffs. They then launched a massive rebuild and have lost 98, 94, 94 a... [More]

Sun Sep 921:21'Rally Squirrel' returns, Cardinals beat Tigers 5-2
DETROIT (AP) — DETROIT (AP) — The St. Louis Cardinals needed something to get them going on Sunday against the Detroit Tigers.Out of nowhere — again — a squirrel appeared.In an episode sure to revive St. Louis fans' memories of the 2011 Rally Squirrel, this game at Comerica Park was scoreless going into the seventh inning.

St. Louis has a one-game lead for the second NL wild card spot.During the 2011 NL Division Series, a squirrel cut across the diamond at Busch Stadium, running right past home plate during a game against Philadelphia.

Fri Sep 718:40Reds drop Homer Bailey from rotation
CINCINNATI (AP) — The Reds dropped Homer Bailey from the rotation Friday, leaving their highest-paid pitcher with no role for the rest of a disappointing season.Bailey is 1-14 with a 6.09 ERA and has lost nine straight decisions. The Reds are 1-19 in his starts this season, the fourth in a row that he's been injured.Interim manager Jim Riggleman said Friday that rookie Tyler Mahle will take Bailey's place in the rotation for the rest of the season. Bailey will continue throwing in the bullpen and stay ready in case he's needed for a start.The Reds considered moving Bailey to the bullpen, but the right-hander doesn't think he's capable of pitching in relief."It's not so much he's not willing to do it, but he just feels very strongly that the preparation he feels like he has to do means he will not be able to help the ballclub out of the bullpen," Riggleman said. "That kind of transition is something he'd have to prepare for in the off-season."The Reds gave Bailey a six-year, $105 mill... [More]
