Re: Grade Jerry Narron
Narron is a bench player's nightmare. Get on his "B" list and you get no PT.
Get on his "A" list and you will never be out of the lineup.
Instead of using his 25 guys, he is content with using 15 or 16. The regulars get into mental ruts and the subs get rusty.
Look at Randolph...for example. Milledge is only up for Floyd, but he gets PT.
When Denorfia was up here (for Griffey) he started what? Once?
I gave him a C. And that's assuming he had something to do with the Williams and White DFA's.
He is generally better than Miley but maintains some of Miley's traits, in particular the VET-LOVE. I understand that. As a 40 something, Narron relates much better to the 30 somethings than the 20 somethings (esp. those who speak little english).
(Actually Narron is 50).
