I doubt very much Krivsky and ownership will fire Narron during the season. The problem lies more in the clubhouse where there is no leadership among the players. And despite beating the trade Dunn topics to death, I think that dealing Dunn is more likely to happen than seeing Narron getting fired?
You look at Dunn and see a DH. Already he has a seven errors in LF. His inability to hit in clutch situations has hurt this club more than Narron's managerial decisions. He continues to pile strikeouts despite having a new hitting coach each year. You don't see improvement in the guy.
One thing the club is hurting at is against lefthanded pitching. Krivsky might not want to admit but trading Kearns and Lopez has hurt this club in this area despite adding Conine. With the emergence of Hamilton, it makes it easier to trade Dunn for a righthanded bat and possibly bullpen help. But in order for a trade to fly, the Reds would have to first guarantee Dunn's option for 2008 because they won't get anything substantial if he is just a rental for a team for the remainder of the 2007 season.
With that said, I honestly believe if there is going to be a shakeup, it will be a major player like Dunn being dealt than Narron getting fired.
It has been awhile since I done a trade proposal but let me dig into Krivsky's past and propose a trade with the Twins:
Dunn and Salmon to the Twins for OF Michael Cuddyer and RHP Juan Rincon.
The Reds get a righthanded hitting outfielder to help them against lefthanded pitching while Rincon gives the Reds a solid arm in the pen. The Twins get a DH in Dunn and adds more power in the Twins lineup with Hunter and Morneau.
