Re: Evaluating Narron-is he really the problem or actually part of the solution?
I personally look at the attention to detail any organization displays, listen to what it tells me and then see if that matches the words the organization puts forth.
I see the same thing from these Reds as I have seen under Boone and Miley. Poor fundamentals, numerous mental mistakes that are often repeated and no trend toward improvement in these areas.
A manager can't pitch, hit or run for the players but how the players play is squarely on the managers shoulders. All of these guys have talked a good game about playing the right way, hustle etc. I have yet to watch a Reds team since 1999 that I thought was playing to the best of its ability.
I don't expect anything from Narron but his team to play hard, smart baseball. IMO, they do not.
