    Narron's double standard

    I guess everyone else but EE can get away with not hustling.

    Re: Narron's double standard

    Narron got on him a little but that's it.

    Narron had some words for Phillips as he walked from third to the dugout after the inning was over, but the Reds manager did allow Phillips back on the field to finish the game.

    "I told him I was thankful he made it to third base, because I would have hated for him to not been in there in the ninth inning," Narron said. "I thought it was out. The only thing I can tell you is, as long as guys get the bases they're supposed to get, that's all I ask for."

    I don't see it that way. He got to third, thats what he was supposed to do. I guess he could've gotten an in the park HR, but you can't get upset with a guy for a triple. He made up for his lack of hustle by busting his butt to make it where he was supposed to.

    But that's it, he didn't hustle. And it's not like EE was going to be safe at 1st on that play. Narron said he wouldn't play guys who didn't hustle. No ifs, ands or buts about it. Now it's, "oh as long as they make their base, they can play." I can't see how it's anything but a double standard.

    Could he have gotten an in the park HR on the play?

    I don't know. It's possible if he hadn't have been slow out of the box. But it's irrelevant if he could have got an inside the park HR. He didn't hustle and Narron said guys who don't hustle would not play. Now he quantifies the statement because Phillips is one of his favorites.It's also going to give him a convenient excuse for not benching Jr. when he turns a double into a single.

    You are saying that a guy hitting a pop up, not picking it up right away, but once he does see it stays in the batters box and never moves is the same as a guy hitting a ball he thinks is out then realizes its not out, and gets a triple?

    I see a difference between them. They were both misjudgments. The difference is, once BP figured out he misjudged he busted his butt to get to third. Once EE figured out he misjudged it, he stayed in the batters box and did nothing.

    To me there is a difference.

    On the other hand, EdE was supposed to get zero bases since the ball was caught.. Appliying that logic, EdE shouldn't have been yanked from the game since it was an out anyhow, and he "got the bases he was supposed to".
    Thank you Walt and Bob for going for it in 2010-2014!

    There is a difference between not running hard and not running at all.

    Neither a good, but one shows a complete lack of interest while the other shows a lack of judgement.

    And they both show a lack of hustle. Something Narron supposedly doesn't tolerate.

    You are absolutely right. But Phillips did what he had to do to get to 3rd. EE didn't sprint down to first once he picked up the flight of that pop up.

    It's all about righting your wrongs.

    Never let 1 mistake become 2...a mantra of coaches everywhere, myself included...

    You turned it over, get your butt back on defense...

    You slanted inside and gambled, hustle your butt downfield and make the tackle...

    You started loafing, but saw the ball hit the wall, bust your butt and get to 3rd base...

    To put it into Redszone perspective:
