    Why do they get a new manager and we don't. It's not fair.

    We'll have to live with Narron until the bitter end. Sux.

    I'd like to think it's because the FO realizes that an interim, midseason hire won't be as effective as an offseason hire, when a complete purge can be done. It's easier to change the tires when the car is stopped.

    It also might be because Narron has a (slightly) better record than Perlozzo in his stint.

    Narron: 151-171 .472
    Perlozzo: 122-164 .427.

    Of course, much of Narron's is thanks to the .500 ball they played when he first took over the team - as well as the hot streak the team went on at the beginning of last year.

    I'd like to believe that too, but reality sets in and I realize that Castellini and Krivsky think there nothing wrong with the club that another relief pitcher couldn't cure. That they think Narron is an unpolished gem who just has lazy and unscrappy players. Scary.

    Of course, if they change the tires while the car is moving, it might save Arroyo's and Harang's arms, too.

    Baltimore has a better record than the Reds....





    Just to note. Narron should note that, too....

    I can't see Girardi taking the job with the O's especially after Angelos dealt Mazzilli such a bad hand.
    If you have a losing record at Reds games, please stop going.

    I think Girardi will replace Torre after this season.

    I think the Boss is leaning more toward Don Mattingly...

    Actually, I think he is leaning towards former Yankee great Jerry Narron.

    They do have a lot of scrappy vets who know how to win.
    And think of the line up opportunities! Josh Phelps - cleanup!

    What if the Reds fired Narron and Dent, and hired Barry Larkin to be the skipper and Perlozzo to be his bench coach. That thought just popped in my head last night.

    Not sure Larkin is management material. But with that said, he'd be a vast improvement over current management.

    Yeah, I'm not sure either. And it might be viewed as a marketing ploy to some extent. But with a seasoned bench coach, he has the smarts and leadership ability to get the job done, IMO.

    I'm not in favor of firing a manager unless you have a team that you think is capable of doing better in that current year. Could the Reds be that much better without Narron? I doubt it. This club just lacks the right players in key places. There is no veteran leadership for the young talent, the BP revolving door between Cincinnati and Louisville has been a joke and their starting rotation is barely 2/5 quality, even with Homer.

    Fire Jerry, keep Jerry, it doesn't much matter this year or even next year until the players in the pipeline are ready to make an impact. I'm hopeful that the minor league situation is starting to come around, but I don't see the Reds winning at this point, whether their manager is Jerry Narron, Lou Pinella, Dame Edna or Jesus Christ.
    Next Reds manager, second shooter. --Confirmed on Redszone.

    I want the O's to take Dusty Baker. It scares the hell out of me that he could be available when/if Narron is fired.
