    You got to believe Dusty's on the hot seat. He's not Walt's man.

    That would be flat out ridiculous.

    I think that would top many. Signing a manager to a contract like that and then dumping him within the first year would be out there.

    Dusty has nothing to do with Dunn and Griffey sucking. Nothing to do with the uselessness of the bench. Nothing to do with the poor roster construction.

    The only negative I would give him would be on his lineup construction. But that isn't enough to totally negate the offense.

    I know Dusty's not the least bit responsible for this trainwreck.

    I sort of agree with this, although I think it's still a little early.

    I agree. As a fan, how is it the least bit entertaining to sit through 3 hrs of baseball only to see your team get three hits? This team is not even entertaining to watch.

    If we all buy 4 tickets to every game the Reds will have enough money to take over Johan Santana's contract in 2013.

    Don't give up on this team!

    I'm bringing my parents (Cub fans...sigh) to two of next weeks games against the Cubs. I already have our seats, but just for kicks, I decided to see what kind of seats were still available. I could pretty much get a good spot anywhere I wanted, which is actually surprising as it's been more difficult in prior years. Unless there is a mad last minute rush, maybe the "sea of blue" won't be in full force for the series.

    I must admit though, that I'm not thrilled about driving 5 hours down there to see a team put together 3 - 6 hits (if I'm lucky). I sure hope the offense decides to make an appearance next week.

    The Reds will sell out when the Cubs are in town, the Red Sox are in town and the Cardinals are in town.

    Aside from that, maybe only on the better fan giveaway days...

    I think Bob is smart enough to realize that no manager would be able to take this poorly constructed roster and turn it into a winning team.

    Dusty is safe through this year, at bare minimum. Probably next year too.
    Thank you Walt and Bob for going for it in 2010-2014!

    Dusty Baker has very little to do with why the Reds are losing right now, and that is coming from somebody who didn't like the hire at the time, and still doesn't.

    I'm going to let Dusty hang himself before I do it for him, and he just hasn't done it as of yet.
