    Brian Kenny crushing Dusty on Twitter

    Makes some good points. (Every sabermatrician would agree. Too many stolen base attempts, too many bunts, horrible lineup construction, telling batters "It's called 'hitting' not 'walking', leaving gassed pitchers in the game so they can "try and get the win," etc.)

    The Dusty Files: 1. Cozart 2 spot. 2. BP 4 spot 3. Misuse of Chapman 3. Chasing W's 4.Tells Choo it's called "hitting, not walking"

    1. He's not hitting in the 2 spot anymore.
    2. Who else should hit there?
    3. I don't think the Reds as an organization want Chapman going multiple innings
    4. Ok
    5. Choo is currently having the 2nd best season of his career

    52 total CS + steals are too much?

    I think he was speaking specifically about Choo. He has 11 steals and has been caught 8 times. WOY, I know you pride yourself on being sarcastic, but you have to admit the Reds' leadoff hitter getting thrown out stealing 8 times is extremely bad, considering he's only stolen 11 bases. How about we stop running him?

    We're not talking about Billy Hamilton getting thrown out 8 times stealing. He would likely have 50+ steals to go along with those CS's (not 11).

    The Reds are pitiful on steals for sure, they run the bases well but steals/caught steals are weak, however the total number is still low in the grand scale of outs they create.

    Both Choo and Phillips have been less than stellar on the paths, and a lot of their bad moments are when the runners on the move and they hitter doesn't connect (ouch)

    Have you ever watched Mesoraco, Votto or Frazier? They can be brutal.

    Historically, Choo steals well. How can that be Dusty's fault? Do you want him to run for him?
    I may not be fast, but I sure am slow.

    Yea, the Reds have done a poor job at stealing bases this year.
    Seems like a good chunk of those caught stealings are on failed hit and run plays. I guess Dusty should use those less often, as he doesn't have that many good contact hitters. However, not really Dusty's fault about the pickoffs (seems like a lot this year). Also, Choo should be able to execute a stolen base.

    The Reds are near the bottom of the league in steals. I think it's the bottom 4.
    It's not like Dusty has them running wild. Not sure it's a valid criticism. If Dusty never tried to steal, that would hurt the Reds as well. Kind of like how DanO forced all the minor leaguers to take a strike.. the opponent knew it and exploited it.. So I think Dusty does occasionally need to try some running.
    Thank you Walt and Bob for going for it in 2010-2014!
