IF and ONLY IF this only does a couple things - like ENSURING that Juan *&)_ Castro NEVER PITCH HITS FOR JOSH HAMILTON ever again - it is reason enough to do it.
Mis-handling the lineups, pitchers, bullpen, and just about everything else in-between is the REAL reason he should be fired. You can afford to make those mistakes in AAA, NOT in the Big Leagues.
We need a GAMEPLANNER and someone that garners the Respect of the BIG LEAGUERS, not because he's managed Career AAAA guys and they've gotten some shots on this "Team" this year.
So long Jerry Narron.You are not the only one in the Reds organization that needs to be fired/let go/released. I'm sure you'll resurface with some other team, perhaps the Rangers again. I hope your brother (Johnny) stays with the Reds to mentor and safeguard Josh Hamilton. I know Krivsky and the prior regime dealt you a bad hand but you really misplayed that hand horribly as witnessed by the posts above this one and the 1,000,000+ fans who have walked through the turnstyles.
I wish you, sincerely, best wishes in your future endeavors!
This baseball team needs an owner to put his money where his mouth is and invest in proven winners. The Reds Nation will support a winner! That is fact!
However a proven winner is not you in MLB and that's not Krivsky as a GM. That's not Castro and not Coffey...apparently two of your most used and beloved reserves. Krivsky needs to pawn those two off on JimBo and maybe, just maybe, include Tom Hume as icing on the cake, uhh, I mean deal
Reds replace Narron with Mackanin
Sorry, didn't see the sticky. duh.
