I’m not saying that firing Miley will accomplish anything. Even if they would fire the coaching staff, which I don’t believe they’ll do, it won’t make any difference this year.
But when does the organization make the decision that, if they don’t want to have 10,000 people a game for the rest of the year, they have to make a move…even if only for PR’s sake? (Like John Allen’s trip to Colorado.)
The Reds are 5-7 since Allen made his trip to Colorado. They beat up on the pathetic Devil Rays and put a pretty good beating on the first place Orioles.
But since then they’ve been humilitaed by the World Champions and lost the first two of a series to the Braves. And tonight’s game looks like a sure loss with Eric “HardHat’s Needed” Milton going for the Reds. That’ll be 6 straight losses, with the next 9 games against teams with above .500 records (St. Louis 5 games, Atlanta 1, and Cleveland 3).
They finish up the schedule to the All Star break with 7 of 10 with teams below .500 (3 Houston, 4 SF, 3 Arizona).
Do they do it before the All – Star break? At the break? Not at all?
I think at some point, they’re going to fire Miley. The question is when.
He’s already lasted longer than I thought he would.
