Paul O'Neill May Manage The Cincinnati Reds

Paul O'Neill is my favorite baseball player of all time.

"Thanks, Bryan."

I won't get far into the reasons why, let's just say that I love his passion for the game. When he became a Yankee in 1993, I was really excited. Honestly, I liked him as a Red, but it wasn't until he helped the Yankees win four World Series titles that he became "the man" to me.

I'm happy that he may be getting an opportunity to manage, as I think he'd be really good at the job. I suppose his emotions could get the better of him at times, which could be a problem, but Paul is a very smart person, as Yankee fans like myself have heard recently.

Oh, and I'm sure there are more than a few water coolers that are getting nervous that Paul could be back in the dugout.

At the same time I'm sad that he may be getting an opportunity to manage, but that it won't be with the Yankees. I don't mean to say I didn't want Girardi back (I did), I'll just miss having Paulie around the Bombers.

O'Neill and the Reds are just in the discussion phase of things, so nothing's set in stone. But I wish The Warrior the best in whatever he does.
