The Reds completed 44 games yesterday -- with a record of 17 - 27. What is so significant about that point in time during this season?
Back when then Reds manager Tony Perez was unceremoniously dumped by Jim Bowden -- the club had just finished 44 games into the season. At that time, the criticism leveled at Bowden was that perez was not given a fair shot -- by being dismissed so early into the year.
Now, at that exact same point in time -- Jerry Narron's future is one of the club's most fervent topics of discussion.
The fact that the club has crossed this "milestone" might mean that Krivsky and Castellini were getting closer to realistically reassessing Narron's future.
