    I've got this strange feeling that DanO will be managing this team more so than Narron. We'll see.

    Maybe Dunn can get a start tonight.

    I think it was the puppetmaster who gave the order to axe Miley and Gully, we can only hope that DanO is next.

    I believe this is more O'Brien's call than Narron's, and obviously, we know how O'Brien intends on addressing the issue....slowly.

    From ESPN's Website:

    CINCINNATI -- The Cincinnati Reds have fired manager Dave Miley, replacing him on an interim basis with Jerry Narron.

    The Reds, at 27-43 this season, are mired in last place in the NL Central at 18.7 games behind the St. Louis Cardinals. The club has struggled mightly on the road this season, going 6-24 away from Great American Ballpark.

    Miley, who has managed Cincinnati since 2003, compiled a 125-164 record and was named Baseball America's Manager of the Year in 2004.

    The Reds are in the midst of a three-game series at home against the Cardinals, dropping the first game Monday night 6-1. The second game in the set is Tuesday night.

    Information from The Associated Press was used in this report.

    If things continue status quo now, then O'Brien goes. Remember, Miley wasn't his choice, Narron is one of his men. The rest of this season falls on Dan O'Brien.
    This is the Cal Ripkin Jr. of typos.

    If you ask me to join your fantasy baseball league and I select Legolas in the first round, don't be angry at me. It's not my fault I've read up on the players and you haven't.

    Good start! But O'Brien should go at the end of the year!

    What's wrong with right now? I'd rather have a competent GM making the deadline trades.

    It's all on O'Brien now. He's got his man in as manager. If the Reds continue to spiral out of control he will be the next one gone,although it will be after the season.

    I would guess, at least with the pitchers, Ruhle will want to have some time to evaluate the talent (ok, that is debatable) he was given....

    I hate to be happy when someone loses their job, but Miley has lost control of the club and gullett just wasnt getting any production out of the staff he was given, except for harang.....

    Ruhle is one of O'Brien's hires as well. It is entirely an O'Brien regime now.

    He won't be though. Partly because Miley and Gullett were not really his hires and by replacing them with his guys he will have gained a little more time on the job. I also expect you will see enough improvement in both Milton and Ortiz to justify Gulletts firing. Quite a few pitchers have come to Cincy in the last few years and performed below career norms and a few more have left only to improve when they went elsewhere.

    Re: Miley Fired!

    So since Ruhle was there in '96 that means he was insturmental in developing what young pitcher for the Astro's...

    Who Oswalt already in the system?

    What is the direct effect he has on the pitchers there? Maybe that type thing will relate here.??
