I think having Dusty back would be fine as long as the bench is improved. My issue with Dusty is lineup and game management but if his tools are improved then that can be reduced as an issue. Dusty lost me for a long time on June 24 which is best known as the game in which Chapman gave up the bomb to Willingham in the 9th and the Reds lost 4-3. http://espn.go.com/mlb/playbyplay?gameId=320624117
Where Dusty lost me was after bomb, Frazier walked to bottom of the 9th. Mez was due up next. He already had gone 2 for 3 with a double. Mez had been playing better of late and was the hot bat of the day. Instead, Dusty sent up Willie Harris to bunt. Harris bunted, then a couple of batters later Valdez made the last out. I was done. He does seemed beloved by the players and over a season that means alot. If we get him the full complement of players to avoid the bench that the Reds had this year then I say bring him back.
