From today’s “Sporting News Today”:
The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that Dave Duncan, who is working in his 14th campaign as pitching coach of the Cardinals, is considering leaving the team after the season for personal reasons. ThereÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s nothing wrong with his work: The Cardinals are running away with the N.L. Central, in large part because of the way Duncan has handled the pitching staff. The problem is that Duncan is angryÃ¢â‚¬â€ at the media, which he believes helped run his struggling son, OF Chris Duncan, out of town, and at the organization that has created a minor league pitching philosophy without his input. Ã¢â‚¬Å“IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢m not ready to make that decision (to leave) right now,Ã¢â‚¬Â he told the newspaper. Ã¢â‚¬Å“When I do, it will be a personal decision, not a professional one.Ã¢â‚¬Â
With Bob and Walt’s love of all things Cardinal…could he be in the Reds future? Anyone not in favor of going after him, if he’s interested in coming over? Thoughts?
