    Hope Mackanin enjoys his vacation. Nice job by Krivsky keeping his word by giving Mack that interview he promised. People wonder why there are good baseball people turning down opportunities and more money to come work in the Reds FO.
    It's absolutely pathetic that people can't have an opinion from actually watching games and supplementing that with stats. If you voice an opinion that doesn't fit into a black/white box you will get completely misrepresented and basically called a tobacco chewing traditionalist...

    When one (or more) of Aaron Harang, Bronson Arroyo, Homer Bailey, Johnny Cueto, or any other promising Reds pitcher and/or prospect walks off a mound holding his throwing arm, you'll know better.

    And that scenario is going to happen, guaranteed.

    And we all thought Narron was bad with pitchers.

    This is gonna be bad.

    I guess the silver lining has to be that this regime pulled the plug on Narron 1/4 of the way through his 2 year extension.

    Oh well. Welcome to the REDS, Dusty. Good luck. I wasn't for your selection, but you're the manager and I'll support you.

    I like it. His Giants teams were usually overachievers if anything. And that was on a consistent basis. I noticed a trend of getting everything he could out of his teams (usually).

    Comparing Narron to Baker is like comparing Turk Schonert to Carson Palmer. OK, maybe not that extreme, but you get the point. One never should have been a MLB manager (and his W-L record proves it), the other has a track record of success (and his W-L record proves it).

    I'ts not so much Dusty managing the team that worries me. It's what it signals about the organization that is so troubling. I have a feeling it's going to be a long time until we see a Reds organization capable of competing in the modern age of baseball.

    A 3 year deal for him as well. I seriously give up, I can't take it anymore. My days as a Reds fan are about to come to an end. :thumbdown

    Exactly.

    Just when I start thinking this organization is getting somewhere, it poops down it's leg....again.

    Well done, boys.

    Bye, Wayne.

    Homer Bailey and Johnny Cueto....RUN. Run away!




    Our owner is clueless, by the way.
