You can't have it both ways with Dusty, IMO.
I think the consensus is that he is a great team-builder/leader by deferring to vets and deftly managing ego's, psyche's, young players, etc... There were several times this season that the Reds could have gone south and I do believe that quality leadership was part of the reason we stayed the course. And leadership comes from the top....and it absolutely filters through Dusty.
Therefore, I think we must accept that Dusty is going to be very slow to make any drastic changes involving those vets that he invests with leading the team.
I don't think he could make a guy like OCab a focal point and then stick him on the bench come post-season.
