    Re: Narron Fired

    If true, what purpose is served at this point?

    The season is lost, and he should be forced to endure this debacle like the rest of us...with a puppetmaster dictating how young players are to be utilized.

    mackanin hasn't managed since he was the interim managers for the pirates a few years ago. He has been an advanced scout in the reds system this year.

    I think begun is the wrong verb...this team has been circling the drain for weeks.

    I wonder if this is all somehow related to the Hargrove move. Maybe the Reds have a guy in mind and are afraid the M's are going to go after him.

    Narron had to go. I no nothing about Mackanin, but Narron had to go.

    This should have been done about a month ago too.

    The way he handled the pitching staff (especially Arroyo) was borderline comical.

    He lost the clubhouse after the Edwin fiasco.

    Pete Mackanin
    From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
    Jump to: navigation, search
    Peter Mackanin, Jr. (born August 1, 1951 in Chicago, Illinois) is a former Major League Baseball player and current coach.

    Mackanin was drafted by the Washington Senators in the 1969 Major League Baseball Draft and made his debut with them in 1973, after they'd moved and become the Texas Rangers. In a 9-year career, he also played for the Montréal Expos, Philadelphia Phillies, and Minnesota Twins. In 548 games, he had a batting average of .226, 355 hits, 30 home runs, and 141 RBI.

    After retiring as a player, Mackanin spent many years managing and coaching in the minor leagues. He became the Expos' Third Base Coach in 1997 and spent four years in that position. After returning to minor league managing for two years, he became Bench Coach for the Pittsburgh Pirates for the 2003 season. He served as interim Manager of the Pirates for the last month of the 2005 season, leading the team to a 12-14 record. He is currently the Advance Scout for the Cincinnati Reds.

    He is a graduate of Brother Rice High School in Chicago.

    I don't think this is accurate. How do you know?

    It's feasible that the double-standard applied to Phillips and later Hamilton regarding the situation lost him points, but to say he lost the clubhouse for benching a player after (ostensibly) for not running out a ball? That's pretty far-fetched..
