    Jon Fay.... WOW!

    I normally don't pay attention to media types but Jon Fay caught my eye tonight after the game. Did anyone check his twitter feed? I've never seen a beat writer call out a manager like that before. Do you think he will get suspended or barred from the club house?

    RT @gingEER13 will you keep defending Dusty? One of the worst managers in the game//Well I suggest you sit out the rest of his tenure.

    I think the fan tweeted that Dusty is one of the worst managers.

    I think Fay responded, if you don't like him sit out his tenure.

    Fay wasn't criticizing Dusty, just telling the fan to back off or sit out Dusty's tenure.

    The part before the / is what the person he is responding to said, that's the way Fay tweets.
    "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."

    Yea, the actual Twitter webpage and Twitter apps doesn't allow a user to "quote" a message prior to a reply, so you have to do it manually, which ends up looking exactly like what Fay did in the OP.

    I think Fay is conning us. He is doing a Q & A with himself.

    It is indeed infinitely more entertaining to imagine Fay is arguing with his own split personality.

    With an assist to renowned lyricist Taylor Swift, John Fay would never ever (everrrr) question Dusty Baker, which is my biggest complaint with him (apart from completely failing to understand the concept of spell checking).

    I'm glad I didn't have to pull out this clip for Fay:

    Just spellchecking? Because a Fay blog post has more proofing errors than a ladybug has dots.

    John Fay has never said a negative thing about Dusty. He will defend Dusty until he retires.

    There's nothing in it for Fay to criticize dusty. Even if he hates him, his career depends on a good relationship with the Reds management.

    Exactly. If Fay burns bridges with individuals who work for the Reds, he loses access to information from those individuals. A beat writer's job is not to provide HIS candid opinions, but to convey facts and opinions from insiders.
