I'm not kidding.
The entire city of Cincinnati could do a better job of managing this team than Dusty does. He is terrible and will be the reason this team underachieves.
Worst manager I've seen a long while. I'm going bald watching his stupidity.
Dusty waited Sunday. What was the average baseball fan's reaction when he "waited too long" to take Arroyo out?
I know something worse than Dusty's managing--hindsight aided criticism. The only puzzling thing that came out of last night's managerial decisions is "if Chapman in the 10th, why not in the 8th?" I got home late and why Bray was in there made no sense to me. It looks like the intention was to not use Chapman if possible, but when the game went extras his hand was forced?
