Krivsky: Narron's safe

I asked Wayne Krivsky today if Jerry Narron's job was safe for the immediate future.

He was a little taken aback by the question. But he said firing Narron is "not even on the radar."

He went on to say:

“We’ve got a lot of good professionals on this team – a lot of guys who have been on winning teams. Everybody in there knows what it takes to win. One of the hardest things to do is try easier. We’re going to come out of this. We’re going to come out of it soon. I believe we've got players in there with a lot who are going to show the people and fans that there better than they’ve show. I'm look forward to seeing that.”

Wow, is it possible to have less than zero confidence in Krivsky?

When you put Castro consistently in a pinch hitter role, your Managerial career should definitely be in question.

Narron is a joke, and I am not sure how he can be considered an upgrade over Dave Miley.

This just shows the imcompetence of the entire organization

It shows me that all the talk about "veteran leadership," "clubhouse chemistry," and the like is meaningless.

This team is full of good guys, gets along great, and has has plenty of veteran leadership. They have lots of guys who "have been there before," "know how to play the game the right way" and "give you professional at bats."

And they're in last place.

Talent and performance matter. The other stuff is just something to talk (and write) about.

FWIW, kudos to Krivsky for sticking with his plan (whatever it is). If he thought Jerry Narron was the right man for the job in February, he shouldn't change his mind based on 35 games.

(That said, Tom Hume is still employed as bullpen coach for this team. Nobody ever mentions Boom-Boom.)

Narron talks about "playing the game right" but it's the same old Reds. They win by the long ball. Defense is a little better with Gonzales but still sub-par. Why doesn't Narron walk Berkman? He's "small market" all the way.
