    Castro batting 4th (Fire Narron)

    After Encarnacion came out of the game that stupid Narron put Juan Castro batting cleanup. This is inexcusable. Please, Jerry RESIGN or face getting a pink slip come July 31st.

    Dude, the lineup order doesn't really matter after the first inning.

    Re: Castro batting 4th (Fire Narron)

    I saw on another thread that Edwin was benched for coasting on a pop up. If thats the case, the manager has the right to get him out of there. I don't care where he is hitting. Who else was going to come in??? I think "Fire Narron" is a little rash.

    He never left the batters box.

    i like the idea of keeping a reds version of "mini me" on the roster for situations like this

    He didn't coast, he didn't leave the box.

    It was abvious he didn't know where the ball was though. He thought he fouled it back, he even looked back.

    Whatever, we won.
    I love Josh.

    What I would have liked to have seen instead: Subs in Griffey, Moves Freel to 3rd, Hamilton to CF.

    and he also thought the ball was behind the first base dugout in the stands....

    I keep reading where people think the guy watched the ball off the bat and into the 2nd basemans glove.... he turned around and looked over the dugout thinking he had a foul ball, stepped back to the batters box to see the next pitch before he saw the ball about to be caught by the 2nd baseman.

    At what point then should Narron do something about these "misjudgements". Not necessarly talking to you Doug, but Jerry's gotta do something here. Dunn, Jr, and now Ed aren't sure where a ball is hit and don't run hard/averagely down to first. Enough is enough.

    Dude, I know it's a joke, thus the smily face was added at the end just like this one.

    Ideally, yes. But from what I've seen over the yrs, when Jr. gets a night off...it is a night off. Just the way it has been...again, this doesn't warrant a "Fire Narron" thread. Like/dislike Jerry, he has a right to pull Edwin on a folly like that.

    There is a difference between thinking a ball is gone, and just simply not knowing where the ball is. He thought it was a foul ball.

    Narron can quickly kill the issue by putting him in the lineup Friday. He'll have made his point, and not made in an issue. If Edwin sits Friday, it will become an issue.

    There is a difference yes. But this is the 3rd time in a week a batter has been "confused" for lack of a better word on a ball in play. If there is a doubt, run to 1st. Narron just can't watch these "type of plays" time and time again. The moral...just run to first unless you are 100 percent sure of the landing spot of the ball. If it isn't in the seats, you'd better be off down the line. If you screw that up, you are at the mercy of your manager.

    Fair enough.

    If Edwin starts Friday, the issue is dead. There is no issue. If he doesn't start Friday, then here we go again.
