    Jerry Narron.

    In all my life of watching baseball, I don't know if I have EVER seen a dumber move than walking Howard with men on 1st and 2nd with no one out in the bottom on the 14th.


    I am just stunned right now.

    That really was a bad move. If he gets Howard out, then you have the pitcher for the second out/double play.
    This is the ol Left Hander rounding third and heading for home.

    He took a gamble and he lost, that's all it was. I'd advise him not to go to Vegas considering his luck on a lot of the gambles he seems to take though.

    What's scarier is that I think Bucky Dent agreed with the move.

    Re: Jerry Narron.

    While I generally agree, the odds of Howard getting a hit in that situation is pretty good, so I don't really think it matters. It should never have come down to that. We had the lead twice and couldn't hold it either time.
    I hate the Cubs!!

    Considering the solid hit to end the game, I think the point is moot.

    Good point, does ease the pain a little.

    It's asinine!!! His reasons are stupid!!! He didn't take Dunn out, did he? I wouldn't take Dunn out either, but who would you rather have at the plate, especially right now? Dunn or Encarnacion? It's an easy answer...

    True, but infield defense and outfield defense are apples and oranges. I don't think he should sub out EE either, but the odds of a booted grounder or bad throw are more likely than an outfielder making an error.

    Re: Jerry Narron.

    Narron's moves are really disheartening. The walk is not even a decision for most MLB managers, you face Howard even though you don't like it.

    If Jerry hadn't been given an extension I could at least be dreaming right now that he'd been gone next year and we'd have an improvement, but as it stands we all know we get him next year as well unless Wayne makes a shocking move.

    Over a vastly drawn in infield, between vastly drawn in outfielders...

    It's still horrible strategy to walk the bases loaded with no outs while being the visiting team. It's even worse strategy to bring the infield that far in when you could have played them at DP depth. There really wasn't anything Narron did right at all last night, which fell directly in line with everything else he's done this season.

    Loving that extension Krivsky gave him....

    Re: Jerry Narron.

    My question about narron is what was his record before and after the contract extension? I Know Bob C. / Wayne K gave him the extension somewht early in the season right? Seems to me narron's descion making has taking a turn for the worst since the contract extension. But this also makes me wonder what might have a more established manager done in this situation say Lou Pinella or Davey Johnson ?
