    Jerry Narron Appreciation Thread

    C'mon, we rip him all the time, and rightly so. But he deserves kudos for pushing all the right buttons the past several nights. When we lose there are a million "Narron stinks" threads, but I didn't see one thread praising him on Reds Live last night or this morning. It works both ways and the guy deserves some credit when we win. He went for it all last night and I loved it. He is playing for our division, not the wild card. Now if he would just bench Clayton...

    I'll say this. He has seemed to pull the right triggers with the use of the bullpen in individual matchups lately. He didn't have that luxury earlier on in the year.
    I'm East of you. Be very very worried. Not quite OBX. But, be worried.

    Re: Jerry Narron Appreciation Thread

    I don't really consider myself a Narron basher, but have been frustrated with some of his decisions.

    Last night, I was very pleased with Narron. When Aurilla walked, Ben (my son) and I looked at each other and said, "Let's run Deno." Narron did. Then in the 9th, we were worried that he would let Clayton hit but he used Valentin. (Of course, that move didn't work out so well, but it was still the right move.) I said, "He may be finally starting to get it."

    The attitude toward Narron was helped a lot by playing EdE against a right-hander and letting Aurilla sit and his use of the bullpen last night. Let's hope he keeps this up.

    I did see a couple of props in other threads. I think this roster is solidifying in a way that gives Narron loads of options. It's not always going to be perfect, but things seem to be running on all cylinders right now.

    I say this one has a very good shot to reach 3 whole pages.

    Considering Jerry's contract has been re-upped for 2 more years, I don't think that's going to happen.

    Like any manager he's good when his players play well and do their jobs. He made a big deal at the time of the Cormier deal about how Rheal is so good vs RH hitters, but then last night he pulls him in favor of Coffey to face a RH hitter. I think Narron's OK and things worked out beautifully last night. Here's to hoping that his players continue to make him look good.

    Let me repeat something I've said numerous times on here....

    This team is winning in spite of Jerry Narron.

    Let that sink in.

    Re: Jerry Narron Appreciation Thread

    Trust me, there will be some here who will find it impossible to compliment Jerry for one nice game. It doesn't mean they think he's now a coaching wonder, or that overall he's even a good coach. Frankly, I think he's good as a "transition" coach but prob not the guy to take us all the way. Their raw hatred of the man will not allow them to issue nice words.

    But for some to even say something nice about one game......doubt it. The silence on this thread is defening.

    So the next time someone says, "I'll complement Jerry on a good game, but........", we'll have to think back to this thread and wonder if they are really true to their word.

    And I'm not talking about everybody who doesn't like Narron, just a small segment of them that are not objective and honest enough to say, "yea, he did a good job in the 3rd game vs St Louis".
