    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."

    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:

    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.

    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.

    awww....c'mon.. Up until the day he was axed, the media had nice things to say about Bob Boon. Even Ray Knight had the courtesy of a captive media. Beat writers are not in the business of passing critical judgement on the team they cover. They never have been. They are paid PR men, not impartial journalists.

I'll take my scorecard and pencil and beer and hot dog and rage at the dips and cheer at the highs, but I'm not ever going to stop loving this game and this team and nobody will ever take that away from me."

    I've heard Fay doe snot can be a great source of vitamin E but has side effects like causing typos and giving one "the wind" something fierce.

    This one was better, I'm sure Fay reconsidered after reading it:

    RT @gingEER13 Because the Cardinals have a legit manager. That's the difference maker//Good God, man, go to bed before I block you
