Krivsky: We haven't talked to Girardi
I just spoke with Steve Mandell, Joe Girardi's agent. He would not comment on the report that Girardi had interviewed with the Reds.
Wayne Krivsky said the Reds have not spoken to Girardi or anyone else, other than Pete Mackanin about the manager's job.
"As you know, he's broadcasting with Fox and the Yankees," Mandall said. "There's a lot of speculation out there. It's not relevant."
Would Girardi be interested down the line?
"If the opportunity presents itself, he'd look at his options," Mandell said.
Girardi is the hot name. But three guys with World Series rings as managers -- Bob Brenly, Tony LaRussa and Ozzie Guillen -- figure to be available after the season. Joe Torre could be on the list as well.
I don't think money will be a problem as far as Bob Castellini is concerned when hiring a manager.
