We are almost two years into Dusty's tenure with the Reds. He sits with a record of 118-137 with a .463 winning percentage. He has a little less than 1.5 years left on a contract that pays him around 3.5 million per season.
My overall opinion of Dusty has been mixed, he has definitely had his ups and downs with the Reds and I would give him a C for his overall handling of the Reds. He was definitely a guy who Cast wanted and he seems to have a pretty good relationship with Walt. That being said I don't think it is too early to start discussing Dusty's future with this club.
My question is this when does Dusty start to feel some heat from the front office? Will it be the end of the season? Next season? Will things heat up if he doesn't receive an extension? What are your thoughts?
