Going to be plenty of snickers around the league over this one.
Hopefully Walt and the research staff can have better luck teaching Dusty the importance of On-Base Percentage and Run Expectancy tables this year. Somehow I doubt it.
This was a blown opportunity to improve the team by upgrading at manager. I guess the Reds chose to concentrate on public relations instead of improving the product on the field. Its a shame, but the Reds will still be fine even with the strategically-challenged manager.
Curious: who would have been an upgrade?
It seems beyond argument that Dusty was a great clubhouse manager. In the other hand, his in-game management is extremely debatable.
But who on the market is slam-dunk good at both aspects? And why aren't they managing right now?
