Reds Managerial Obit for Jerry Narron "Baseball Guy"
I am assuming that today was the last straw. I really like Jerry. He is a good man. I think he does not do a half bad job. He can't get across the same things that the managers before him could not. The underachieving seems to be the legacy of our current players. Wayne didn't help by stoking the fan base with the trade that was going to "save" our bullpen. He is in trouble too but the rope is shorter for Jerry. He helped bring us Josh Hamilton, which is a gift that will keep on giving. He was a stickler for fundamentals, but could not get his team to concentrate on them. This may be the sad irony of his managerial stint here. He said it many times and it continues to remain true. Jerry Narron will be forever known to me as a "baseball guy".
