Look, I'm not one to think that a manager has a big impact on games, but this has gotten to the point that it's ridiculous. It's one of those things that we don't have stats to examine how good/bad a manager is but I seriously doubt anybody that watches the Reds on a day to day basis thinks he's doing a good job. Cordero was obviously spent today and to leave him in the game with a full complement of players in the pen with the break coming up is inexcusable. Pythag is supposed to be great indication but when your manager keeps losing game after game it's no wonder the real record is not an indication of what the pythag record says the Reds should be. If nothing else, maybe this will be Dusty's last stint in professional baseball at the end of this campaign.
This is the ol Left Hander rounding third and heading for home.
