As I just mentioned, the quality of the conversation about Dusty here is usually very different. Those threads usually cover the merits of his strategy in the game -- of his lineups, of his bullpen usage, etc. Though some posters do occasionally attack him personally, that's not something I condone or hope for, and it doesn't disqualify the merits of the other discussions that happen, since there are concrete elements of managerial choice that can be discussed fruitfully regarding Dusty. With Votto's supposed "boneheadedness" we have few places to go other than baseless speculation. I suspect that's where the mocking comes in (though I don't condone that either).
