Narron sitting out '08
I spoke to Jerry Narron yesterday. He said he turned down four offers to coach in the big leagues. He's going to sit the year out. The Reds, of course, are paying him through 2008.
"I'm fine," he said. "I have 25 years in the big leagues. Let someone else a chance."
Narron, the self-proclaimed Baseball Guy, gets his fix daily, working with his son. Connor is a sophomore shortstop for Aycock High. I'm no expert in such things, but I've got to think the kid will be a first-round draft choice. He started as a freshman on the state championship team. He's a switch-hitter with some pop.
