YES Network and Yankees play-by-play voice Michael Kay tweeted this out a short time ago on Wednesday:
@RealMichaelKay: Breaking news: sources say Yankees announcer Paul O’Neill has spoken with Reds owner Bob Castellini about the Reds’ vacant managerial job.
Obviously, Kay works with O’Neill, who is a former Reds right fielder and member of the 1990 World Series winners. The Reds have kept the external candidate list quiet, but this is certainly interesting. O’Neill has no managerial experience on his resume.

UPDATE: Through a team spokesman, the Reds deny that they have contacted O’Neill about their managerial vacancy.
