    Re: Dusty Fired

    sort off the main list many reds fans have used Brad Ausmus? Was a finalist for the Boston job this past season. I just know I don't want Riggleman with the way he took his ball and went home on Washington and really lack of any other real success anywhere else he's been.

    Re: Dusty Fired

    Let's start listing every possible candidates that come to mind:

    1) Girardi (not going to happen)
    2) Bryan Price (seems like a status quo move)
    3) LaRussa (if this happened, let's just call us the Cardinals)
    4) Brad Ausmus (no managerial experience)
    5) Riggleman (managerial experience, but quit on a good Nats team)
    6) Barry Larkin (I know that this one will start a firestorm, but something tells me that he might want to give it a shot. I could be wrong though)
    7) Eric Wedge (uh, no)
    8) Chris Speier (Dusty's underling, don't want it)

    Re: Dusty Fired

    I love the idea of Larkin on the coaching staff, but is it too soon to place him in charge of the squad? I know there were thoughts of making him a player/coach toward the end of his playing days though too. I think it would be a great move for the city, but I would hate to have a bad parting with him if he wasn't ready to produce the results the organization is clearly expecting.
