Re: Day Game Again 1:05 start; Thursday 4.12.12 Reds @ Nationals
IMO, the managers #1 job is to give his team their best chance to win... Dusty didn't do that today!
The hitting has to get better... The starting pitching hasn't been great.... But when you battle to get back in a game you have no business winning, then I expect the manager to pull out all the stops. If nothing else, you've gotta do what you can to get Votto Bruce and Rolen another AB.
I know a lot of people are talking about his on-base percentage (.308 in 2008), but I like to think more in terms of him his in-scoring position percentage. - Our Beloved Manager
