The Reds are currently riding a 13-game losing streak, their worst such streak since 1945, but the team isn’t making any changes in the dugout for next season. Reds general manager Walt Jocketty made it official this afternoon:
The Reds enter play today at 63-97 on the year. Depending on what happens with the Phillies (62-97), they have a chance to finish with the worst record in the majors. It seems like Price has been on thin ice ever since his profanity-laden tirade back in April, but the team’s disappointing season doesn’t fall completely on him. The Reds have relied mostly on a rookie starting rotation since the Johnny Cueto trade. Not surprisingly, things haven’t gone well.
Price owns a 139-183 (.432) record over two seasons since taking over for Dusty Baker as manager. He’s under contract through 2016.
