Narron canned?

Dunno how reliable this info is, but someone at Red Reporter says Reds manager Jerry Narron was fired after today's game.

FWIW, John Fay thought this was coming. The timing is right, with an off day tomorrow.

The Yankees and Reds games had some uncanny parallels today. Both had their starting pitchers lit up. (Homer Bailey for the Reds, Andy Pettitte for the Yanks.) And both the Reds and the Yanks scored enough runs that it might have been enough to win if their starters hadn't been rocked.

Andy Phillips had a great day. He was 3 for 3 at one point, and ended up 3 for 4. Hopefully that will keep him in the lineup awhile longer.

The All-Star rosters were announced. A-Rod and Jeter are in the starting lineup. Jorgie is a backup. No Yankees pitchers made the All-Star team. I guess that says it all.

Ken Griffey, Jr. is the Reds' sole representative.

I'm starting to think they should send Homer Bailey back to the minors. He's not helping the team. Getting pulled in the 2nd or 3rd inning is brutal on a bullpen that's already struggling. Plus there's the whole clock thing.

The Bats won today, at least. They beat the Clippers 6-0. Freel started at 3B and went 0 for 3 with a walk. The Bats radio guys speculated that he might get one more start as an infielder, then rejoin the Reds.
