    Castro pinch hit for Hamilton

    Why?


    "Two outs, nobody on, trying to get a right-handed hitter up there, Castro is 1-for-1 lifetime against him. If there was someone on base, I’d have given Josh a chance to whack it out of the ballpark. I’m just trying to get something going any way we can."

    He is the only one on God's green earth who thinks Juan Castro is the answer to "get something going"

    Re: Castro PHing for Hamilton

    I have never once chimed in on "Narron bashing" but that is ridiculous, inexcuseable, insane, and just flat out dumb.

    1 for 1 lifetime. Well, there's all the evidence I need.
    There is no such thing as a pitching prospect.

    Maybe Narron can't take the losing anymore and wants to be fired.

    Re: Castro pinch hit for Hamilton

    Castellini must not be much of a baseball fan, because even those most causal of fans would know that Jerry Narron has absolutely no idea of what he's doing.

    What does it say about the GM (other than the fact that he's covering his butt) that Narron is still managing this team?

    There's really no justification for retaining Jerry Narron.

    Re: Castro pinch hit for Hamilton

    I really, really like Juan Castro (the guy and the defender) and I think he needs cut. Well at least sent down to the AAA, and call up Bellhorn I hate to see a guy lose his job. But both he and Moeller are killing us just by being over there on the bench with a uniform on.

    My guess is we would get better production from the kid with the uni on that fetches those pieces of wood and donuts.

    No justification AT ALL at this point! None!

    I'm the same way. The first time he was in town I thought he added something to the team, even with his weak bat. But now it's become blatantly obvious that he just doesn't have it anymore. It's not a big money deal, at this point they might as well eat it and see if Keppinger can handle the role.

    I don't know what's worse, Narron actuallu thinking Castro is better than a little leaguer or the fact that Krivsky continues to keep him on the 25-man roster. Juan Castro stinks at everything he does on the baseball field. He's worthless.

    Narron just wants it to end at this point. Tommorrow is a day off. Just. Maybe.

    I like JN but he's probably eyeing greener pastures.

    The Reds were 9-21 in May, and now they're 7-11 in June. Jerry Narron has righted the ship to the tune of a 16-32 record - a .333 winning percentage - since the beginning of May.

    Ready...Castro vs Hamilton vs Lefties...

    Castro vs LH .240 BA, .296 OBP
    Hamilton vs LH .250 BA, .327 OBP

    Embree vs LH batters: .286 Embree vs RH batters .253




    The numbers show Hamilton is the better option....but I don't think anybody should need numbers to know that.

    Good point I forgot about Keppinger, my vote goes to him as well.

    If I had a dime for every time I've heard this said about a MLB manager I'd be rich, rich I'm telling ya... bloody rich!!!

    That said, Gene Mauch rears his little head every day in the Reds dugout, today it was the Castro PH. Back in 1985 The Angels had a low slugging CF named Gary Pettis, Gary could get on base though and yet it was not uncommon for Jerry Narron to PH for Pettis, Jerry Narron who had a lifetime .270 OB%, and was .67 points lower than Pettis in that 85 season.

    I'd like to see someone pinch manage for JN for the rest of my lifetime.

    I believe a monkey sitting in the dugout could do just as well (or as bad) as the current incumbent manager, and having a monkey as a manager would free up a little cash to use on pitching or pinch hitters.
