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.
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.
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.
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.
