Barry a coach!

Barry stuck to his word that he'd rather retire than play for a team that's not the Reds.

He really wanted to play, but I respect his loyalty.

Although, I must say that his immediate jump to the front office of another team hurts his loyalty edge a little (very, very little).

Yeah I'm also glad Barry didn't taint his career by playing with another team.

There are few Tony Gwynn's and Cal Ripken's these days -- Barry can join that list now instead of joining the Patrick Ewing, Ray Bourque, Karl Malone, Michael Jordon, Joe Namath club.

But did Larkin wear 29 different uniform combinations in his years in Cincy?

He didn't wear 29 he wore a few

-for three years he wore the white pullover no stripes on pants and a single red stripe on the arm, the gray jersey was the same only gray, so that's two

-in 88 the team put two red stripes on the pants and sleeves, so that's 4

-93 they switched to the vest look with pinstriped hats and gray pinstripes on the road, so that's 6

-99 they switched to their current set, that's 8

-2003 they added the red alternate 9, 9 combonations

I still find it odd that he would continue in MLB in any capacity outside of the Reds franchise. I know Bowden used to be with the Reds, but still...

The Reds wouldnt hire him as of now. I bet he ends up there eventually. It's just timing.
