    On the cusp of five straight losses to the Marlins and Royals. A lot of quit in this franchise.

    I think in baseball more than any other sport fans do appreciate the skill of managers for their actual managing people skills.

    I believe it is the managing of people was Dusty's greatest skill. It is not something you can see with stats. It is managing people between the ears and not between the lines. Dusty was not the best at on the field decisions but seemed to be great at managing the clubhouse. Managing the clubhouse is huge because players are together basically everyday from march to September. I think keeping moral up, keeping the team motivated and keeping conflicts to a minimum are huge for a manager.

    Dusty teams never has the malaise around it as other managers

    Thom with a few parting shots, albeit guarded, on Votto before he calls it a year.

    This is the major leagues.

    Not. Obviously you haven't been paying attention to the Reds pitchers

    20 runs in the last 14 games. 5 straight losses. I'm guessing the players did not get that memo on Positive Momentum.

    I had free tickets to this game. Good seats too. I just didn’t have any interest to go watch a lot of bad baseball.

    It's called positive momentum, still fighting for that better draft selection.

    I just shake my head. All those good drafts and promises of a revival of the Reds, were lies. They fired Dsuty Baker, hired Bryan Price, traded Mike Leake and Johnny Cueto for so many arms that have proven to be fodder, brought up sterling prospect after prospect pitcher, only to see them fail, gave Homer Bailey a number one contract to a number five starter, fired Price and gave the keys to the Pinto to Jim Riggleman, and kept losing for five years. If this wasn't so tragic, I might laugh out loud, but I'm not laughing. This incompetent bunch has ruined five summers for me. We went from a 90-win club to a 60-some club with poor decisions and laughable decisions. Why are any of us following at this point? Emotional environment. And I don't see it getting any better with the FO we have.
