Ever since firing Bryan Price, the Reds have been guided by interim manager Jim Riggleman. Now, they have to make the decision as to who will manage the team moving forward, and the search is underway in earnest.
#Reds will interview John Farrell. Already interviewed Pat Kelly, Billy Hatcher and Freddie Benevidas— John Fay (@johnfayman) September 25, 2018
John Farrell is the most high-profile name that has been linked to the Reds so far. Farrell managed the Red Sox from 2013 through 2017 and won the World Series in his first season in charge.
Farrell is sure to get plenty of interviews this off season, as there are not many skippers on the market that have a record above .500 in over 1,000 career games managed.

The job with the Reds seems like a natural fit for Farrell, though, as he is already employed by the team in their scouting department.
