Let’s start off with the news of the day: The Reds, Director of Pitching Kyle Boddy, and Hitting Coordinator C.J. Gillman have “parted ways” as of Friday morning. Both Boddy and Gillman released statements of their own, noting that the organization was going in a different direction than the way of the previous regime that was in charge when they were hired (the Dick Williams led front office). You can read their full statements here if you would like. I will have some more thoughts on all of this at some point this weekend here at RedsMinorLeagues.com.
