Lateral moves are the last thing this team needs.
Seriously, from a marketing standpoint Dusty makes a lot of sense..."everybody" loves a big name heading their team...
However, from the standpoint of where this team is (essentially about to undertake a youth movement as 5 members of their likely '08 lineup, 60% of their rotation and practically their whole pen wouldn't even be arb eligible) I neither understand why Dusty would want to come here nor why the Reds would think he's their guy...
