I know that won't be a popular opinion, but I put much more weight in the managing of PEOPLE than I do in the managing of a GAME. He manages a game "by the book" and it frustrates tons of people who think they know the game better than the old schoolers. They very well may. I won't dispute that. But, and this is a very big "but", doing things "by the book" has worked pretty darned well through the years...and no matter how much fans study the game on their computers, Dusty probably knows more about the ins and outs of the game than any of them.

    He makes mistakes, he makes decisions that leave us scratching our heads...but at the same time he also has more information at his disposal that influence those decisions that we have no clue about. His teams win, his teams are competitive, his teams play HARD, and his teams play as a team. He's got my support. I LOATHE the managerial merry-go-round and I love stability in the clubhouse.
    It's not as small as you might think. Using guys like Taveras, Patterson, Stubbs, Janish at the top of your lineup takes a toll over the long haul. And then using Hannahan as the DH tonight? We'll never know for sure, but I bet that really hurt the Reds tonight. Hannahan is a defensive specialist. Everyone knows this. He's not a good hitter. And there is Dusty B. Baker using him as a DH. You can't make this stuff up!

    Only Paul Janish is not surprised. He's the only one! (OK, Taveras and Patterson too.)

    Oh the old "leadoff HR as rally killer" idiot myth getting trotted out by Welsh again.
    I saw that coming a mile away.
    Nothing like a play to instantly energize your team/demoralize the other team(especially the pitcher) at the start of an inning when you're down a few runs
    (Referring to Jack Hannahan signing with a Korean team)
    Since there are no teams on the moon, I guess South Korea's far enough from Cincinnati to satisfy me.

    Hannahan grounds out, and now we're down to our last out.

    He's looking good right about now. You? Not so much.

    I thought the discussion was about Hannahan.

    Generally I'd agree with you. Although Dusty hasn't always had the best candidates.

    I understand Cozart this year. It's a lefty/righty thing. Don't agree with it although Zack is doing ok now.

    Last year Stubbs obviously was a poor leadoff choice, although there weren't great options out there.

    Those of us questioning the Hannahan move wouldn't have a problem with it if Dusty didn't have a LONG HISTORY of horrible lineup decisions. So, it's not just about Hannahan, but that's a small part of it (and the most-recent example).

    Fans should not know how to construct lineups better than the Reds' manager. Yet, we do.
