I'm willing to overlook re-signing Lincoln after a bad second half. I'm willing to overlook Reds' confidence in Burton based on past performance.

But enough already with both these guys. They've had numerous chances, let them try to work out their problems against minor league pitching or for some other organization.

Cincinnati's lost its starting 3B for a month, its starting 1B has been day-to-day for two weeks, and its starting 2B has a broken thumb. Add to that a gimpy SS, a starter with a balky back, and a pen with more questions than answers.

Yet the Red manager has guided his team to a winning record, despite these shortcomings. But yeah, he sucks.

Sorry, I don't understand how releasing Burton would help keep Lincoln around, or how the two are even related. Maybe I'm missing something.

Let the Reds' brass worry about where they go, minors, DFA, trade, whatever. All I know is that the Reds have some great arms in the organization and it's time for Lincon and Burton to go. Both.

Yesterday Burton didn't have it. Today Lincoln didn't have it. They are not helping right now.

Cincinnati's lost its starting 3B for a month, its starting 1B has been day-to-day for two weeks, and its starting 2B has a broken thumb. Add to that a gimpy SS, a starter with a balky back, and a pen with more questions than answers.

Yet the Red manager has guided his team to a winning record, despite these shortcomings. But yeah, he sucks.

Ding, ding, ding, ding! We have a winner! :beerme:

Another instance of agree to disagree I guess.

Dusty's managed the staff quite well, the pen quite well, got everybody some playing time and managed to plug in the right guys at the right times. For a team as young as this one is and for us to be missing the players we have...he's done a VERY good job IMO.
