Re: Evaluating Narron-is he really the problem or actually part of the solution?
Of note, that list has Dusty Baker as 6th best manager (+23) during the 2000's.
Interesting study, thanks for posting this. I think Narron takes far too much heat here. Every move he makes that doesn't work out is his fault, not the player who failed. Yes, he does make some moves that I question, but he knows these players far, far better than we do- like who is hurt, who is up or down emotionally, etc. There's way more to it than most of us realize.
Overmanaging, I believe, was Bob Boone's specialty!
