Go to church, light a candle or whatever your tradition is and pray ( or whatever you do) that Castellini sees the light, fires Krivsky and hires a man who will show Narron the door and actually pay some money for leadership. I know, that's a stretch, but only divine intervention will right this team.
Your protesting notwithstanding, we have a real GM. As some of us have said, you don't turn things around in a short time. And we're dealing with a short time here; the new ownership has only been in place 1 1/2 years and the GM position wasn't filled until right before last year's Spring Training.
As for paying for leadership, Narron's salary isn't, and never has been, the issue. He's paid similarly to many managers, some of whom are in first place. Of course, look at what the big bucks are getting for the Yankees, the Cubs, and the Redbirds.
I agree with some of the other posters here who acknowledge that there are some good things starting to come around for this club, even if the record still doesn't show it. I'll look at the real silver lining they're seeing, not the ongoing disdain for most things Reds that others seem to gravitate towards.
