Re: Narron setting clear path for Reds (2/20)
I disagree, Chip.
I think Miley was calling the shots, and things like starting Aurilia were his attempt to give the FO what Miley thought it wanted to see.
Miley was clearly in over his head as a major league manager, and when things went south, he had no answers. The team saw his fumblings, and he began to lose respect in the clubhouse. So he reverted to "authoritarian" moves like Chairgate and Uniformgate, which had served him well in the minors when he'd wanted to reassert himself to kids who were unwilling to rock the organizational boat. Those sorts of things look a bit silliy to veteran millionaires.
Bascially he treated men like boys while looking inept at his actual job. For that, he's got no one to blame but himself.
Makes all the routine posts.
