    Is he perfect? Heck, no. But let's be reasonable.
    I never said he should be fired. All I am saying is that was the dumbest decision I have ever seen a MLB manager make.

    Another CLASSIC post!

    Please tell us all why he deserved a contract extension? What has he done? The season is not over and it is only going to get uglier!

    I don't advocate firing him at all. But I do advocate giving him the strictest of warnings if I'm WK. Rolling the dice is one thing, throwing them off the table and at the people who hope you'll win is quite another.

    1. Has his team LEADING THE NL WILD CARD

    What else do you need, a lesson in baseball?

    or maybe you'd rather have Kearns, Lopez, Miley and fourth place back?

    Re: Jerry Narron.

    Don't forget....Narron is a self-proclaimed "BASEBALL GUY" so you know he has sound logic behind all of his moves....whatever!!!

    I'm guessing they won't be after tonight depending on the Diamondback game...

    Is that the one that hit off of his glove? I didn't get to see the whole game?

    ASAP? That's just making something up. I'm just dissapointed that we aren't seeing a full season from him before he gets that K extension after being reviewed post season.

    People keep saying that, and have been since, what, a month into the season. Seems after every loss, someone is on here saying "Well that's it season's done." But we're still leading/tied in the wild card. If we win tomorrow please say it again so atleast you'll be consistent.

    Ah, OK.

    So you're one of THOSE guys.

    That makes ignoring you in the future a lot easier, thanks.

    For the record, he's 105-103 as Reds manager.

    Re: Jerry Narron.

    What is this, the thread for eighth graders? My goodness people, back up your staements. It gets old hearing "Jerry's the greatest," "Jerry stinks," and "so does your mom." And none of those are backed up with anything by half of the posters on this thread. Geesh. Narron is neither the best or worst manager in the history of baseball. Both sides of this argument need to think a little bit. As for me, I'll flip flop after every game.

    Re: Jerry Narron.

    So we should extend a manager for have his team play "mediocre" baseball. IMO, the job of the manager is to motivate and make sounds baseball decisions. Tonight and many other games he has not helped this teams chance to win with his decisions. And how is our 13 million dollar many unable to hustle out ground balls? I don't give a **** if he is Ken Griffy Jr. chew his ass out.

    If Ross doesn't throw the ball into center field in the 9th inning, the Reds win. There is a lot of blame to go around for tonight's game.

    Re: Jerry Narron.

    I may be in the minority, but I don't think it was the unsound decision that everyone claims it to be. The key to walking Howard in that situation is that you have a reliever coming to the plate next who has only 3 at-bats the entire year. I don't think Narron does it if any position player was coming up next. You strike out the pitcher, which didn't happen but you got the out, and you can get out of the inning with a ground ball.
