    Interesting discussion in Trent's Blog

    ...the 2-2 to Woodsen and here it comes...and it is swung on and missed! And Tom Browning has pitched a perfect game! Twenty-seven outs in a row, and he is being mobbed by his teammates, just to the thirdbase side of the mound.

    I raised this same issue a few days ago, and just brought it up again on Old Red Guard. (I am not Mr. Short.)

    yes, he does. It's almost word for word what I wrote here.

    Sorry for not giving the board props in the post.
    I enjoy the discussion here very much.

    Don't always agree with it, but that works both ways.

    Great Post. I didn't see it here when it was posted.

    I cannot agree with it more, and it just convinces me more that Narron is very much part of the problem.

    edit: I did see...even repped dfs for it. But the RZ version didn't have all that great detail.

    Maybe if they didn't have to throw 30 pitches to get 2 outs, they could go longer. Anyone got a stat showing pitches per outing, or how many times the bullpen has a full count? I bet it aint pretty.

    I just had a quick check around some other Cincinnati Reds blogs, and Mr. Short's write-up is getting quite a bit of notice. RedReporter linked it, as did Lance McAlister in his blog. Obviously it's been discussed at length on Trent's blog and on here. Very good post and research dfs!!

    I think it just confirms what redszone has thought for awhile now. Narron is a bad manager.

    Just look at some of the things he's done. I know his record is awful, but he's a bad manager.

    Yes, this Blowpen seems to make a habit of walking the first batter they face. It is almost automatic and they always seem to be pitching behind in the count.
