    Folks, it's just a baseball game. Many of you are acting like this is the end of the world. There are far more serious things in life to worry about than whether Dusty Baker manages a ball club.

    Since you dislike them, I feel much better about them panning out.

    We'll leave it at that.

    It'll certainly give folks a handy excuse when they flop. Though I'm guessing Cueto's headed to the pen, where he'll be safe from Dusty.

    Just out of curiosity....this could be important information

    He most likely had less to do with Prior and Wood's arm problems than it's percieved, but it's not percieved how hard he worked them.

    I may be mistaken but wasn't our very own Dick Pole a pitching coach with SF in the 90's and a bench coach with Dusty's Cubs?
    I dont care, Votto said of passing his friend and former teammate. Hes in the past. Bye-bye, Jay.

    From Trent's Blog -

    Tuesday, November 07, 2006
    Pole named pitching coach

    Veteran big-league pitching coach Dick Pole will take charge of the Reds' hurlers next season. Pole, 56, has ample experience in the role, previously serving as pitching coach for the Cubs (1989-91), Giants (1993-97), Angels (1999), Indians (2000-01) and Expos (2002). Pole was Dusty Baker's bench coach in Chicago the last four seasons.

    She's a model and mostly now does work for the UFC ... former ring girl, now hosts UFC All Access when it airs. She was in Maxim awhile back at some point too.

    I have no idea if she knows what baseball is, but if she does she'd probably say no to Dusty Baker too.

    I gave up seriously caring about this team a couple of seasons ago. They're fun, but they're a diversion, and becoming moreso with each passing season.

    The talk on this board is way more interesting than the team itself. If Dusty "wrecks" the team it's not like it will be anything we haven't seen--it'll just smell a little different.
