I don't blame the loss on Dusty though, Heisey needs to come through in that situation regardless and if he doesn't Bruce needs to pick him up.

    But it is only 1 game of many.
    And the decision to bunt would have taken 0 hits to score the run...but to be fair, while I don't agree with it, I can understand the opposing view that would elect to give BP and Votto the opportunity to drive in the lead runner with a base hit. Given the Reds inability to produce up to that point (including those two), I support the decision to bunt.

    Like you said, it's 1 of 162 and there will likely be at least 161 more decisions we can debate ahead of us...part of what makes the game of baseball so great!

    So does Choo move to left now and Heisey/Paul take over centerfield?

    Taking the bat out of Joey's hands is never the right idea.

    Yay, Redszone.

    Methinks this thread will be revisited when the Reds win the division.
    Why? Dusty has proven that's as far as he can take the Reds. Revisit the thread when he actually does something in the playoffs.

    I hope Kremchek doesn't screw this up.

    In terms of the schedule 10 MLB games = 1 NFL game, 160 MLB to 16 NFL games a season. Yesterday's MLB games represent 6 minutes of 1 NFL game.

    Let the complaining continue

    Geez man.. In 2010, the team made the playoffs despite not exactly being loaded, then had to face the Phillie Juggernaut. Yes, it was disappointing we got swept, but I don't see how that was Dusty's fault.

    2012: Despite losing Cueto, the Reds took the eventual World Champs to 5 games. Again, disappointing we blew a 2-0 lead, but we played them pretty well.

    10 teams make the playoffs now. It's incredibly difficult to win the World Series.
    I'm not saying it's all luck (it's not) but I don't see how it's Dusty's fault that the Reds were knocked out in the first round.

    The only fair criticism I see was starting Volquez in Game 1 in 2010. Although starting someone else would not have probably changed the outcome.
    Thank you Walt and Bob for going for it in 2010-2014!

    No having a manager who takes the bat out of your best players hands takes the joy out of baseball for me.

    So you think Votto gets a hit more often than Heisey does something that would score a runner from 3rd with bases loaded with one out? Would love to see the numbers you come up with there. Love Votto as much as anyone but don't see how those numbers work out.
