    Time adjusted the night-black tint on my glasses to rose.

    I get the feeling that it doesn't matter much who the manager is (although Dusty might be the most negative choice). Any Redszone poll that says: Are you happy with the selection of xxxx xxxx Manager? would come out with negative results unless it was Davey Johnson.

    I haven't seen much positive written about anyone else.

    I'm still not a big fan of the move. It was better than a lot of other alternatives, but I have a hard time believing there weren't better choices out there.

    I'll revisit my opinion when I see what the 25 man looks like in April.

    I admit, my hope was for Davey Johnson.

    I've grown tired of the likes of Jerry Narron.

    But Dusty Friggin' Baker?
