All his talk doesn't win games or set any tone. His job is to motivate these players to produce. They are under-performing for about a year and a half now. Sorry, I see no reason to be happy about that. Of course it was predictable when Dusty was hired but you don't want to hear that now do you?
So should he motivate with sign language? I don't get it?
What does motivation without a tone sound like? Will Ferrell's monotone character?
Does first place, 3rd in the NL, even with pythag, all sound like a gross underachievement to you?
Did you predict Dusty would win division title when he was hired? I bet you didn't!
How many believed he would ruin the young core coming up in 2008? So funny...
