Narron brings in lefty Bill Bray with the bases loaded and one out in the sixth. Bray, an emerging stud, pops out Brian McCann and gets Jeff Francoeur to ground weakly to second. Narron: Genius.
In the seventh, Narron lifts Bray for Gary Majewski, who gets Edgar Renteria to ground out with the bases loaded. Narron: Genius.
In the eighth, Majewski gives up two singles, a triple, a home run and a sacrifice fly. Narron: Potato salad.
"Genius" Narron left Bray in the game too long in the seventh, which is why the bases were loaded when he brought Majewski in.
Narron also burned through the bullpen on Saturday, which is why he considered Cormier and Weathers "unavailable" on Sunday.
And I don't consider tanking a game to preserve the arm of Cormier (only 36 IP this season) "genius" at all.
Daugherty paints Narron as the victim of circumstance, but in reality he's responsible for putting himself in those circumstances.
