Former Reds manager Brian Price is a legitimate contender to become the Phillies, Jim Salisbury and Cory Cory Seidman pitcher at NBC Sports Philadelphia. New manager Joe Girardi revealed on Monday that the Phillies had already conducted "several interviews" in hopes of coaching, although it was unclear whether they had spoken to Price.
Hiring a price for the Phillies may not be inevitable, but it's worth noting that he simply rejected the Diamondbacks' interest in him for their coaching position. Price, meanwhile, has talked to the Red Sox about their vacancy, but it looks like they will pick Dave Bush over him.
If the Phillies really want to hire Price, the stars seem to line up for that. However, the Phyllis may still consider other candidates ̵
The 57-year-old Price will bring a wealth of experience to the staff of Girards at Fili. Prior to managing Cincinnati from 2014-18, Price held coaching roles for the Mariners (2000-06), D-backs (2007-09) and Reds (2010-13). Whether the Phillies choose Price or someone else, that person will take over the staff that failed in 2019 due to a combination of subpar performances and injuries. As a result of their troubles this season, Phyllis with deep pockets seems focused on giving his next coach more to work in 2020 than the ousted Chris Young has available this year.
