WARP in Cincinnati: A show about the Cincinnati Reds

Remembering Joe Morgan, Why Did Dick Williams Step Down & Non-Tender Twist

Listen on

Episode notes

Hall of Fame second baseman and Reds legend, Joe Morgan, has passed away at 77-years-old. Paul and C. Trent react to Morgan's passing, the legacy he leaves behind and his contribution to Cincinnati's "Big Red Machine" and their championship runs (:30). Reds president of baseball operations Dick Williams made his position vacant after a decade-plus-long run as a member of the teams' front office. Why did Williams step down, and what factors played into his departure (14:00)? How will his tenure with Cincinnati be remembered? What decisions will be remembered most (22:00)? What's next for this club (25:30)? As unique of a season as 2020 has been, this off-season, including the time when players are non-tendered, might be even weirder (30:00). Plus, the venerable Dusty Baker and other playoff musings (37:15).
