At a press conference today at 3:00 p.m. ET in the field-level interview room at Great American Ball Park, Cincinnati Reds general manager Dan O'Brien will announce Jerry Narron as interim field manager for the remainder of the 2005 season.

Narron replaces Dave Miley, who earlier today was relieved of his duties along with pitching coach Don Gullett.

 

 

 

Through the end of this season, Vern Ruhle will assume Gullett's duties as pitching coach.

 

Narron, 49, becomes the 58th manager in Reds history and the 48th since 1900. He had been on the Reds' Major League coaching staff since December 2003 as Miley's bench coach.

 

During the 2001 and 2002 seasons, Narron managed in the Major Leagues for the Texas Rangers. He also managed 4 seasons in the minor leagues for affiliates of the Baltimore Orioles.

 

Narron spent the 2003 season as bench coach under Boston Red Sox manager Grady Little and was a coach for the Rangers from 1995-2001. While he coached at Texas, the Rangers won the American League West Division 3 times (1996, '98, '99).

 

Ruhle was hired by the Reds in 2004 as the pitching coach at Rookie League Billings and this season was the organization's minor league pitching coordinator. He has 7 years of experience as a Major League pitching coach with the Houston Astros (1997-2000), Philadelphia Phillies (2001-2002) and New York Mets (2003). He will wear uniform number 58.

 

Miley was named Reds manager on July 28, 2003 and compiled a 125-164 (.433) record during parts of 3 seasons.

 

Gullett had been the club's pitching coach since May 24, 1993.

The Reds have not been as good as advertised. I expected them to be a lot better.

 

But doesn't Dan O'Brien deserve some of the blame? He is the one who signed Milton and released Graves. I don't know, the Reds look like they have been going in circles for 2 years now.

It's too late in the season. The Reds are already 18.5 games back of the Cardinals who have the best record in the N.L. and have been hott the whole season.

 

The Reds have a lot of talent, especially in the power area. They're a big homerun hitting team, but they can only seem to put that strength to use at home, and not on the road.

 

All they need to do is start winning on the road where they have the second worst record in the N.L. at 6-24. They're fine at home where they're 21-19.

 

And the way they can start winning on the road is if they start pitching better. They're pitching has been HORRIBLE. They have allowed the most amount of runs in the N.L. So if they can start pitching then they will start winning more on the road, and then they won't be so bad.

Dont kid yourself, getting rid of Graves was the best thing he could have done. Graves just sucks.

Don't get fresh with me freshy!

 

This is a MARLINS message board. A post like that about the Marlins maybe would be obvious, but about some other team that's in a whole other division who sucks so we don't hear about, it's not obvious.

 

I bet less than half of the people on this board knew that the reason why the Reds have been doing HORRIBLE(if they even know the Reds have been doing horrible) is because they've only beed bad on the road. People would expect a team with such a bad record to play bad on the road AND at home. And it's not so obvious that they're pitching has been horrible to everyone here since we watch the Marlins and the Marlins barely play the stinkin Reds.

Peter Gammons almost called the Reds Pres. and idiot on ESPN today. He said something like "step aside and let O'Brien and Miley do there jobs, becuase he doesn't know much about baseball."

Gammons is a moron. Dan O'Brien was the reason we were so terrible this year. He made a horrible signing by getting Milton, who is a flyball pitcher in a park that is like the easiest to give up homeruns in. Miley has mishandled lineups all season.

 

First day Miley and Gullet are gone

 

Reds pound the best team in the NL 11-4, think about that. Is that a coincidence, I think not!

No offense Freshy, but the 11-4 win has nothing to do with Narron being manager now. The lineup was the exact same as the day previous except for LaRue out and Valentin in for catching. Miley had blind-squirrel-finds-nut type of outtings.

 

Tomorrow, around 4pm (game is at 12:30), we will probably see a pitching line from Ortiz being 2 innings, 5 runs and 3 bb.

 

 

I agree O'Brien is the major problem with this team. There is rumor out that he is dictating lineups, pitching rotations and the sort. If that is the case, we are screwed beyond all help.

 

Also, Allen, the Reds COO, didnt want O'Brien as the GM. It was Lindler who apparently wanted him.

 

I want Lindler out of the controlling owner role. He know zilch about baseball.
