Jerry Narron, Good Manager

Reds manager Jerry Narron immediately benched cleanup hitter Edwin Encarnacion after he failed to run out a pop fly in the first inning. Encarnacion didn’t even move out of the batters box towards first base.

"I don't care if we lose every game, we're not going to play guys that don't hustle," Narron said. "Simple as that."

Kudos to Jerry Narron, most managers wouldn't have the stones to do something like this...especially in the first inning.

I don't know what the big deal is. The Reds are such a good hitting team that they knew they wouldn't miss Encarnacion.
