I'd like to understand and appreciate another appearance....and, now the job part comes in, sort of be a part of it.
That's the beauty of the off season. The team can't prove you wrong until April!
This team has about 100% more direction than it did at this time last year. Even though he's not my choice, we have a real manager, not a guy they just threw in there because he was likeable. First base may be manned by a kid who can hit and field and is young. We have a shortstop and a backup. We have an outfield who could conceivably hit over 100 HR's. Only the pitching needs improvement. Same as last year.
...like the Narron firing press conference which was a humiliation on the part of the Reds....people crying, the owner looking like he'd been hitting the Jack Daniels for the past 6 months.
I agree. Those two created the monster Narron and waited too long to make a move (even extended him), so they should have been mad at themselves, not crying. It became more obvious when a nobody named Macklanin took the same team to a winning record. Oh well.
