    That might be the one thing that would cause me to watch other teams.
    In those things which we commit to practice we can master, and with mastery we have the freedom to use these skills whenever we desire, without this practice we are slaves to our inability.

    Scratch your head at this combo

    Dusty Baker - Reds Manager
    Dave Duncan - Reds Pitching Coach.

    The guy thinks high OBP means "clogging up the bases."

    Please tell me it is not Baker. We might as well get Homer Bailey ready for the disabled list if Baker is hired.

    Dusty Baker is a great hitting instructor.

    Dusty Baker is a killer of pitching staffs.

    Just say no.

    Hopefully, this is just Scoop adding two and two and getting five.

    The voice of reason speaks. John Fay's not the greatest forecaster.

    Still scary, nonetheless.

    That thud I just heard was Aaron Harang's arm falling off in sheer terror of what the future might hold...

    Re: Managerial search update(s) Could it be Dusty?

    There's no saying that Dusty coudn't win me over...because anybody can...

    However, if Dusty is still Dusty, I don't see how it'd be possible....



    Ok, winning may do it....but again, if Dusty is still Dusty, how is that possible?

    I'm used to disliking Reds managers, but this is taking it to a whole new level.

    That's along the lines of what I thought, too. Just because this is the only interview a reporter finds out about doesn't mean it's the only interview that's being conducted.

    True..but it's the first real sign of an acual living, breathing human being in consideration...instead of just "GM speak"

    Hopefully, it's nothing more than fufilling the requirements of Major League Baseball in interviewing minority candidates.

    However, if there really wasn't interest in Dusty, why would you bring in a guy of his name calibre as your minority candidate?
