Re: Reds Sign Corey Patterson, Jerry Hairston
Dusty is all talk. He talks the talk when it comes to giving younger guys an equal shot, but he already knows what the lineup will be come opening day.
You could tell by the way he described Bruce's "injury" that he had no plans of having Jay on the team, and this was his way of justifying it.
Dusty had to be the one that made the Patterson/Hairston signings happen.
