Heh. Easy to be an apologist when the Cardinals are 28-31 in the same time period the Reds are 28-33. The NL is simply horrible this year. Apologize all you want, but ten to twelve wins can be put on the head of Jerry Narron this year regardless of whatever else happened.Originally Posted by RedsFanBrooklyn
His lineups and in-game moves defy description. His management of the pitching staff and bullpen are questionable at best. I can see this team with a lead in the division with most any experienced winning manager in charge. And don't give me Jim Tracy. What in the wide, wide world of sports make anyone think he is the gold standard by which managers should be judged. Look at the "sure bet" Pirates this year and the ullimited money of the Dodgers teams he led the last three years.
Our guy is cheap and convenient.
