Mackanin to Yankees

Pete Mackanin has accepted a job as a scout with the New York Yankees, according to scout.com. Mackanin had hoped to get on on-the-field job.

“We had a nice discussion,” said Mackanin to scout.com about the Yankees’ interest. "Fortunately they were looking for somebody, and I fit the bill."

The Yankees also hired Tim Naehring, the Reds former minor league field coordinator as a scout.

Next season the Yankees can hire Krivsky. He should be out of work by then.

I had hoped that Pete would get a shot at a managerial position. Hopefully that door will open for him again soon.

John - On an unrelated note, any word on the status of contract talks with BP? Or does it look like they'll go to arbitration? I realize these are probably rhetorical questions because of Krisky's tight-lippedness, but thought I'd ask.

Who cares. Give us Reds information not junk on bad managers getting jobs.

Good for Pete.

Note how Boston isn't going to be hiring Narron any time soon.

Not even Boston Market

Good for P-Mac. Hopefully he'll get another shot on the field in the near future. He seemed like a good guy, and one that the players respected. Thanks for the update John.

anon 2:04...I, for one, appreciated getting the info on Mac...who was a good manager worthy of a shot. If it was of no interest to you, why did you waste the time of replying? Thanks John...don't always get the info on my team while wintering down here in FL.

Good for Pete. Likable guy I would imagine. Just was not going to happen for him here. If the Reds haven't hired Miley & Narron after interim managing I would bet Pete would have gotten the job.

Any word on Grant Griesser?

Somehow I feel like the Reds lost a pretty good resource here.
