"Home runs are fine, but I'd rather have RBIs and sac flies or ground balls to 2nd with the infield back."
Yep, just watched that too and figured a thread would be starting quickly.
I'm all for run producing outs
What are you, people? On dope? - Mr Hand
If the Reds win, Dusty can say whatever he wants. I am glad I live in Atlanta though, since I won't have to listen to him saying crazy things.
"But I do know Joey's sister indirectly (or foster sister) and I have heard stories of Joey being into shopping, designer wear, fancy coffees, and pedicures."
There's Dusty's offense philosophy in a nutshell. It's now how many runs you score, it's how many outs you can make in the process.
Games are won on run differential -- scoring more than your opponent. Runs are runs, scored or prevented they all count the same. Worry about scoring more and allowing fewer, not which positions contribute to which side of the equation or how "consistent" you are at your current level of performance.
The thing is, I actually really like Dusty. He's got a very likeable personality, and I appreciate the fact that he'll actually speak his mind on the players and other topics that past managers wouldn't touch with a ten foot clown pole.
Problem is, when he does speak his mind he inevitably says things that leave me either or .

I have yet to see a Strikeout drive in a run... Still waiting.
I just had too!!!
Happy Opening Day Everyone!!
Cedric 3/24/08It's absolutely pathetic that people can't have an opinion from actually watching games and supplementing that with stats. If you voice an opinion that doesn't fit into a black/white box you will get completely misrepresented and basically called a tobacco chewing traditionalist...
Adam Dunn drove one in with a groundball to second today with nobody out. In that situation, I'll take that over a strikeout, every day of the week.
Talent is God Given: be humble.
Fame is man given: be thankful.
Conceit is self given: be careful.
