    Redszone Real Opinion On the Reds Management

    I hear so much complaining on this board about the Jerry Narron lineups and about WK's horrible trades, I want to know if its just the yelling minority I am hearing or if that's everyone's opinion.

    So far, Wayne seems to be doing a pretty good job.
    Unfortunately, Jerry seems to be taking the spare parts Wayne has aquired and is using them as primary gears.

    I think Wayne is the reason we're still contending right now. I believe his last few moves have been questionable at best (too desperate), but overall I really like the direction we're headed.

    As for Narron......

    I can't stand him. Coincidentally, since his contract extension, I have seemed to disagree with just about every move he has made. How weird.

    IMO, Wayne has only made two questionable trades..

    Wash was bad.
    Louse is probably going to end up bad (but not crippling).

    I voted for "I like Wayne, but not Narron", because I can forgive Wayne for the two questionable trades since overall he's been very good.

    Even the best GMs (Beane, Scherholtz, etc) pull a stinker occasionally. We have to remember that or we'll never like any GM
    Thank you Walt and Bob for going for it in 2010-2014!

    I'm not going to bash a single member in the organization. Before this season started and before the new ownership took over, this team was a division cellar team. If it wasn't for Castelinni, Wayne, and Narron we wouldn't be watching exciting and meaningFul baseball in August. Instead of the annual fire sale, we could actually shop the market as buyers and make a push for the postseason....something we haven't seen in awhile let alone a winning season in the past 5 years. So great job FO! And to all the bashers, get off their back! This is year one of a franchise revival. Just take a look at what Marvin Lewis did in his first year with the Bengals, back to .500. Baby steps towards a larger goal in my opinion, it just happens to be that we are contending in year 1 of Camp Wayne....so let's sit back and watch our contender over the last 2 months. GO REDS!

    For everyone that doesn't care for Narron: with a manager you would approve of, what do you feel the Reds record would be?

    How many losses would you contribute to Narron's more managerial ways?

    How many wins do you think he has gotten for us?

    "There are several mitigating factors that come into play, vis a vis the Reds' performance the last two seasons versus a wide variety of metrics applied to the current season, that prevent me from feeling the same.

    Circumstances, as always, are subject to change, as we must ultimately examine outcomes through an encompassing lens, lest we omit important, yet easily overlooked details that are too frequently glossed over in the often impetuous zeal for decisive action that all too often victimizes many general managers."
