    Dusty or Jerry?

    Since many are COMPLETELY convinced that Dusty is the problem, would you rather have Jerry Narron as your skipper? I'm not adding additional options because I'm curious to see just how much people dislike Baker.

    What a choice.

    I prefer Dusty. Grudgingly.

    How much was Jerry Narron paid?
    "On-base percentage is great if you can score runs and do something with that on-base percentage," Baker said. "Clogging up the bases isn't that great to me."

    Six of one, half dozen of the other.

    Good point. Narron is easier to fire I suppose. That is a large mark in his favor. But for actual managing, I prefer Dusty. At least he doesn't demoralize his own players.

    I'd really prefer a third choice.

    The lowest acceptable payroll amount for ownership to show they are not greedy pigs is 15 million more than they are currently paying. No matter what that currently is.

    We'd be just as well off.

    Seriously.

    There is no such thing as a pitching prospect.

    Narron actually did what fans accuse Dusty of having done: abuse pitchers.

    Yep, and he really wasn't that good in the clubhouse. This one is a no brainer.

    Here's the big question:

    Dusty or....Dikta?

    Neither, both have had their issues with other clubs before coming here and then when they got here it showed why they were not still employed with their previous employer.

    If one had to pick one of the recent castoffs I would pick Pete Mc.
