Report: Reds looking to hire high-profile manager
The Cincinnati Reds are one of several MLB teams in the market for a new manager, but they have a specific type in mind.
According to Joel Sherman of the New York Post, the Reds are aiming to hire a high-profile name that can be associated with the franchise, and have already interviewed two former World Series winners in Joe Girardi and John Farrell.
#Reds are said to be looking more for face of franchise type as manager so Girardi might make more sense there or John Farrell. Both are championship managers who have interviewed with Cincy.

In other words, the Reds want a big name. They clearly like high-profile players, and clearly believe that this is the ticket forward. Of course, whether such high-profile managers are interested in the hefty rebuilding job that Cincinnati promises to be.
