Not what the marketing department had in mind
Great American was almost full tonight because it's Bronson Arroyo Bobblehead Night. To say the Reds didn't put on a good show is like saying Manute Bol is tall.
The "Fire Narron!" chants started in the seventh right after Todd Coffey gave up back-to-back home runs -- the first the Nationals had hit all year. That made it 9-1. The Reds were nine outs from tying the Nats for the worst record in the Nationals League.
The chants quickly stopped, but you get the point.
CEO Bob Castellini apparently met with the players and staff before the game. Castellini said that can't "overreact in baseball." But it's getting very ugly in Redsland.
