    One dramatic difference though is that Saarloos walks almost twice as many guys as Silva does...

    I'd buy season tickets, even while living here in Atlanta, if the Reds hired Dusty Rhodes.

    There are a few other Dustys I would rather have managing this team.

    He's not worth a look based on the size of the contract he'll get in FA.

    You thought we burned a huge pile o cash on Eric Milton? The pile we burn on Carlos Silva will have a similar smell.

    It's not enough that this team kicks me in the boys 162 days a year, they have to go and intrude upon my pain-free offseason as well...

    I guess I'd have to laugh if Dusty Baker got hired. Really, it would be the perfect storm of awful, and you have to respect when the absolute worst possible outcome actually occurs.

    That would be great, right up until the World Series parade and celebration when Dusty turns heel and awards the title to the American League team, drawing a level of heat that Hogan himself couldn't embellish.

    Naming Dusty Baker as Manager would only be par for the course.

    I assure you I would not laugh but I could see why others would.. and should.

    Homer's pain in his groin would go to his arm very quickly.

    Dusty Baker is the bad man acometh.

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

    One point glossed over is that Dusty is a "California Man" and has a school age son wh live ins California, this being his second family and he having spent the majority of his past 30 years in the west has to bode well for those wavering at the thought of Dusty in the Reds dugout.

    This tidbit was in the SF Chronicle today, Jenkins is a blow hard, but he does know the Bay Area icons and their personalties

    The Reds have quietly made a big push to make Dusty Baker their next manager. It's not exactly his dream job - a highly flawed team, far away from his California home - but it's something he has to consider

    Also he notes...

    Another factor in Bonds hitting the market: Commissioner Bud Selig, a master power broker in his dealings with owners, doesn't want him signing with anyone. Sign Bonds, and you'll be getting no favors from the commissioner ... One point where we're in agreement with Bonds and his handlers: He shouldn't take one cent of a pay cut. He means notoriety and gate appeal, and he's the all-time home-run leader, for crying out loud. CEOs don't take pay cuts. They get raises every year ... Along those lines, there is talk that if Joe Torre returns as the Yankee manager, he'll have to take a salary hit. How petty is that? ... If you're wondering about the delay on Torre's fate, it's that the Yankees can no longer be sure if 77-year-old owner George Steinbrenner is lucid at any time. They have to make sure it's a majority decision within the organization, not some idle Steinbrenner rant.
