    Watching people blame Dusty for literally everything that happens gets tiresome. If the Reds don't win, it's always Dusty's fault.
    I agree 100%. Like I said, I'm not a dusty basher. I'm also not a Hoover fan-boy. He seems like he's got a solid future for a reliever, but he's just a kid. I'm not counting on him for much this season.

    This team is scuffling badly right now. Too many players striking out too much, too many mental mistakes, too many missed signs, relievers struggling, etc, etc, etc. But all of that being said, Dusty's scuffling too. His management of the pen has been very poor this past week and a half. That's one of the reasons we're seeing the results from the pen we've been seeing. Not the only reason, but it's a contributing factor. To not see that is to be keeping blinders on IMO.

    It's not about the situation today. I could've told you before the game even started that there's a great chance that both Broxton & Chapman will struggle with control. Part of that is on Dusty...a big part...but the mistake wasn't today, it was this past week.
    2014 predictions:
    99-63 WS champs (Cards take 2nd WC, Mil 3rd, Pit 4th, Chi 5th)
    Bruce/Votto neck and neck MVP race (neither takes it)
    Bailey CYA winner
    Hamilton ROY & GG

    You can trace everything back to the manager in any game.

    But there's no excuse for Broxton today, he was just awful.

    As for the seventh inning, Dusty didn't have Marshall or Lecure due to injuries and didn't have Hoover and Simon due to last night's long outings.

    I wish Aroldis and Jonathan had pitched this week, but that doesn't excuse the awful eighth inning performance.

    These Pete Rose furniture commercials may be more to blame than Dusty.

    We are a Doc Kremcheck misdiagnosis away from 2005 this week.
    This is the time. The real Reds organization is back.
