Willy Taveras has been scratched from the lineup a fourth straight game Sunday.

Taveras is battling wrist problems. Without Jerry Hairston Jr, Laynce Nix is the immediate beneficiary. Taveras is batting .240/.279/.290 this season with 21 stolen bases. The Reds would be better served to move on after the year, but Taveras signed a two-year pact. It means another year of Dusty Baker ensuring the leadoff position isn't clogging up the bases. Of course, here Baker is just clogging up the bench.

I would still take Dusty before Bob Boone. Bob Boone's Sunday specials were worse than anything Dusty can get his hands on. Dusty's biggest problem is sticking with guys too long to the point of being detrimental. Of course, there's a history of some players getting a chance by Dusty that should not have to begin with, but I still take him over Boone given equal availability of resources.

I'll take a Bob Boone Sunday Special over a Monday No Funday, a Tuesday "won't score 2 day", Wednesday "Bleh"ndsay, Thursday Worst Day, Friday Whyday, Saturday Sinking Ship, AND a Sunday Special.

Fire Dusty.

I'll disagree with you in principal, but rep points to you for the imagery.

He's still better than Jerry Narron, the worst Reds manager I ever did see.
