    Well lets assume Dick Pole and Jacoby are fired too or else fire Dusty won't accomplish much.

    I would do whatever it takes to make Mario Soto our next pitching coach. Then pick a hitting coach that actually knew how to hit at the major league level.

    As far as manager? The Reds dependence on youth means they need a guy who handles the young guys well and almost treats it like a AAA ballclub. In other words, you play someone because they are the best at their position at that given moment, not just "because they are a vet" or get paid more. The Anti-Dusty in other words. (As Hannigan rots on the bench)

    I want Dusty to manage the Reds. There is no way he's out after this year, this team is exceeding expectations.

While I may not agree with every decisions Dusty makes, this team plays hard for him, and thats worth a lot more than it gets credit for around here. Dusty is not the problem, you should look to the management upstairs if you want someone to blame. This team hung around, and hung around despite being undermanned, and they did nothing to go get help for them.

    Rick Sweet the Bats manager. I don't know if

    the Reds would give him that shot, but he's really done well with these kids when he's had them down there.

    Tony LaRussa will be the manager, and Dave Duncan will be the pitching coach. Write it down.

    You have to look at the other teams though, The NL Central is very mediocre this year. All the teams are bunched around .500 which the exception of the first place Cardinals and the last place Pirates. I think the main problem is that the offense is just pitiful. They are ranked nearly last in every offensive category–except for steals–in the national league. Though the pitching is above average, that's not going to overcome a beyond mediocre offense.

    I personally think you need to give Dusty better offensive weapons and see what he does with them before you can him. With so many teams being buyers this year, now would be a great time for the Reds to acquire some offensive players for next year.
