1 second place vote and 3 thirds for 6 points. Thought that should get some opinions going! :evil:

For the record, he finished 6th, with Joe Girardi winning. Jim Leyland won in the AL.

Well, no matter how bad some think he was, he took a team that was picked last from the get-go, and kept them in contention the whole time, I think he deserved more consideration then he got.

When was the last time a manager got fired after a season in which he won Manager of the Year? Has it ever happened?

I think Baltimore canned Davy Johnson on the day he won it in 1997.

This is a siginificant misconception. When you finish under .500 yet remain mathematically in the race through the end of the season, you're not keeping yourself in contention, other teams are simply playing as badly as you are.

If anything, Narron COST us more games than he won for us. If you want to send your accolades and praise for the Reds "surprising" year, you might want to look a few hundred miles west towards that city with the arch...

...he just took that whole extermination thing a little too far.

I had Jerry's back in the beginning....I also changed my tone a bit as the season went on, because he kept making the same mistakes time and time again.

I also said it was premature to sign him to his extension.

With that, he did deserve some votes based on how this team was supposed to finish and how they did stay in contention unil, mathematically, game 160.

Of course, you can debate on if it were more him, or the crappy NL Central...

1 second place vote and 3 thirds for 6 points.

So then a huge percentage of the votes went against him. ;)

Finishing 6th out of 16 when his team had a little better W-L than expected for most of the season seems reasonable.

Who picked the Reds for last? Out of town media folks who don't follow the Reds at all. The same group that just yesterday failed to give Aaron Harang or Bronson Arroyo any votes for the Cy Young award.

Everyone who picked the Reds 5th or 6th, picked the Reds before they got Arroyo and Brandon Phillips, 2 major key starters.

Big deal, he only got 4 more votes than I did.

exactly. I would literally be excited for the first time over a manager hiring if we hired Joe Girardi next season. I really like his approach to the game and how he strategizes.

btw how is Barry Larkin doing as Bowden's protege'? Maybe one day in the future he'll be our GM or manager?

There was one guy on ESPN who had the Reds picked "tied for fifth". The rest were either fifth or last.

Most places thought wed finish 4th or 5th even after the hot start. ESPN on countless nights said forget the Reds the Astros are the team to watch in the chase of the cards.

They were right. The Astros finished 2nd.

4th or 5th as two of the teams in the division would pass us sooner rather than later. Not just one team who would pass us with like a couple weeks to go in the season.
