.....Hope springs eternal
The way I see it, one of two things will happen with the Reds this season:
Either the new ownership's spring training moves will provide some competitive momentum, or the team will fall out of contention early and Jerry Narron will be fired.
If the latter happens — and I hope it doesn't — then an outsider will be brought in to turn things around. Lou Piniella's still out there, isn't he? This would be his second run with the Reds, but with one major difference — no more Marge Schott.
