    I believe the proper question is, Why exactly is Krivsky letting Narron manage the team?

    GM's nowadays seem to prefer a stooge to a strong manager (see Boone/Bowden).

    You know, I was always pretty much on the fence when it comes to Narron, but the decision to keep Arroyo in this game made absolutley zero sense on every possible level, and that's pretty much the straw that broke the camel's back for me. Firing Narron is still not incredibly high on my offseason wishlist, but it's definatly on there now.

    I think I may puke.

    I can't stand Roger Clemons!

    And I'm sick of his show at the end of the season every year.

    I have no clue why, but I was happy to hear the announcers say something about it instead of ignoring it.

    to think that OF of Dunn/Jr/Kearns has devolved to Dunn/Hopper/Hollandsworth.

    Norris Hooper? These guys need to pay attention to what they're doing.

    And yeah, Narron certainly hasn't helped the cause today. It could have gone in a whole different direction if he'd put his A game on the field and replaced Arroyo when it was obvious to everyone but him.

    I guess he didn't feel this game was important.

    Why did they say Shackleford has an inflated ERA?

    I know the answer to that one. It's because Narron is dumb enough to let him face RHBs.

    Bronson Arroyo came into today's game with 221.1 innings pitched (first in the majors) and 3,520 pitches thrown (first in the majors).

    So with the team essentially a non-factor for the playoffs, Jerry Narron elects to allow Arroyo to throw 120 pitches in today's game, including 38 pitches alone during a high stress 5th inning.

    Excellent job, Narron. This really is phenomenal management and caretaking of one of the franchise's best pitchers.

    I can't wait until Narron gets his hands on Homer Bailey.
