I thought of that too, but my guess is Jerry wouldn't be entirely surprised if he got canned. It's part of being a manager- always rent. He has been around the game long enough to know that getting fired is not always a reflection on the manager or even on the organization's comittment towards him. It simply boils down to the fact that you can't fire 15 ballplayers, but that you can fire one manager.
Additionally, the history of the Narron/Hamilton relationship tells me they are committed to Josh's success. My guess is they would be classy enough to do what needs to be done to help the kid out. And Hamilton is enough of a priority for the Reds that they would have to make sure to treat the Narron's right for the sake of Josh. Well, I hope so anyway.
