    You're absolutely entitled to your opinion, and you have every right to state that opinion.

    However, there's no sense debating anything having to do with Dusty if that's the opinion you have.

    Lutz has a .600 OPS. He's had a few good at bats, but I don't see the attraction.

    Not seeing a much better alternative than Hannahan who hasn't hit that badly over a 7 year career.

    It's not that you won't lose, you just won't listen to any other possible p.o.v. in your over the top dislike of Dusty Baker.

    I give credit to EVERYONE in the organization personally. They all played their part. Look at how many teams over the years have not meshed well due to clubhouse conflicts and personality conflicts. Look at the Dodgers this year, the Blue Jays this year. Those are 2 VERY talented rosters. There is more to managing than what happens between the lines...it's what happens between the ears. And IMO, that's just as (if not MORE) important.

    Just dropped in to see what condition our condition was in...

    Doesn't look good at present and Hannahan to DH left me scratching my head. Guess it had more to do with him being a lefty against a righthander. Dusty is Dusty. I've learned to accept it and move on. Yes, he makes some really questionable moves, but 3 of 4 championship seasons gives me pause, but not on a night like this for some reason. Mea Culpa.

    I did not know that about the drum guy. That's awesome. He's kinda like if you wiped all of the cheese off of Chuck D.

    The drums, man, enough.

    I'd take the howl over the drums any day. (I think the howl is awful.)

    "Since I've been with the Reds in 1989, we've never had a farm system this loaded," Bowden said. "If we were the New York Yankees and had unlimited dollars, we could have traded for Colon, (Jeff) Weaver, Rolen, (Cliff) Floyd, (Kenny) Rogers and Finley and gotten them all -- and still held onto our top five prospects. That's an amazing statement."
