Re: Long-Time Baseball Fan...New Reds Fan
Welcome. I look forward to discussing Reds baseball with you. Dusty, like all managers, makes some questionable moves. One thing that I'm sure you realize or soon will, that no matter who the manager is, fans are going to gripe.
Personally, I think managers get too much criticism when a team loses and perhaps not enough credit when they win, but that's part of the job.
To me, Dusty has had a bad wrap on ruining pitchers, that is not to say that his handling of a pitching staff is his strong point. For me, he's been better than what we've had in the recent past.
The Reds are in first place and I'm enjoying the ride. I hope you do to.
