Reds Extend Contracts of Narron, Krivsky

According to Reds.com, owner Bob Castellni has extended the contracts of manager Jerry Narron and general manager Wayne Krivsky.

On Wednesday, Castellini announced that manager Jerry Narron received a two-year contract extension through the 2008 season, with a club option for 2009. General manager Wayne Krivsky's option for 2008 was also picked up.

Certainly the team's success this season has been pleasantly unexpected, but I'm still surprised to see this already. I mean, now where do they put Lou Piniella??

In all seriousness, though, it does seem a bit premature. Why pick up Krivsky's 2008 option before 2007? Why trust that Narron's success will continue? Miley's first season was pretty good, too, and that went ugly fast.

Of course, Bob's got the golden touch. Hopefully his hand in these contracts makes them all the more successful.

    I don’t think you know how uncool it is to get a Reds.com e-mail saying that Narron has been extended. :(

    You’re right, Geki, I don’t know how uncool it is. Because I didn’t get an e-mail. WTF? I’m signed up to get crap from Reds.com. What’s the deal??
