Reds Fire Narron

The Cincinnati Reds announced Sunday that they were relieving manager Jerry Narron of his duties, effective immediately. The Reds made the move hours after losing by an 11-7 score to division rivals the ST Louis Cardinals. The loss put Cincinnati's record at 31-51 the worst in the major leagues, and the only team in the Bigs to have a less than.400 winning percentage. The organization opened up the purse strings this off season and had high expectations. Unless there is a dramatic turn around in the second half of the season those hopes may be centered on avoiding a 100 loss campaign. The last time the Reds lost 100 games was back in 1982. Narron is the second manager to be dismissed from his post this year, Baltimore fired bench boss Sam Perlozzo last month. Narron will be replaced by Cincinnati's advance scout Pete Mackanin. He will be the interim manager for the remainder of the season.
