Don't know how many of you read Rob Neyer, but I've got to thank the man for introducing me to this great quote (http://mlb.sbnation.com/2011/4/22/2126853/mike-leakes-gentle-eyes) by Dusty regarding Leake before Thursday's game:

His eyes were gentle eyes, which lets me know that he knows nobody knows joy and bitterness in anybody's heart but that person. No matter how their face looks. His eyes were gentle to the point of pain and embarrassment.

I'm not even sure what all of that is supposed to mean.

It means Dusty is the ultimate players manager and guys run through walls for him. Sometimes, they try too hard and do stupid stuff, but his guys love him.
