    Obviously, a lot of people are fearing the fire from the smoke that John Fay saw. I'm content to believe it was just the smoke from Dusty's cigar. The smoke cleared when he stubbed it out in the CVG airport ashtray and flew back home.
    Hopefully it is just smoke....I think the reason I'm worried, because this isn't the first time I've heard his name mentioned by people with a foot in the door ...off the record (I think I made reference to it in the final game thread, whether I should have or not is another story ). When I heard it then, I shook my head in fear.

    ....This is the first of it being made public as far as I know.

    I'd be less worried if "Scoop" McCoy wrote the story.

    Put me down as pro-Dusty. Do I think he'd do a good job with the Reds? Not really, but probably only someone who can be successfully non-standard would be able to spur the team to a winning record. Yet the main reason why I'm pro-Dusty is because the complaining about him around here would be spectacular.

    I wouldn't be around here complaining, I would switch my interest to another team until he's gone. It would be too much like sitting in a hospital waiting for someone to die.

    And how would that different from the past seven seasons? Face it, we're hospice fans.

    Boy, howdy.

    But it just occurred to me... we could go around shrieking "Leave Dusty ALONE!!!!!"

    Someone put the life-squad in NJ on stand-by. Edabbs might hemmorage.

    The past few years have possibly made it easier. I'm just hoping they don't do such a stupid, stupid thing.

    By the way, I like to go commando.

    After the well-meaning anachronism of Jerry Narron, the impotent bravado of Bob Boone and the gross incompetence of Dave Miley, I'm impressed that you can still be offended.

    My view is if I survived Miley, then Schottzie III could manage the team and I'd be able to survive it.

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

    I could never bring myself to root for another team but if they hired Baker I would honestly have to emotionally distance myself from this trainwreck of a franchise. It would be the point of no return for me as far as losing what little faith I have in yet another FO.
