    I will reserve judgment until I hear who replaces him...
    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.

    Or Dusty was just being "politically correct" in public...

    I don't know about that...remember, Pole was with Dusty in both San Fran and Chicago.

    Read the full twitter post:
    Dick Pole fired as #reds pitching coach. Rest of staff to return for 2010.
    I just went from mildly pleased to somewhat disappointed.

    If Dusty wanted Pole to remain and was over-ruled, it means that Dusty is on notice, IMO.

    This year, I was actually far more disappointed in our hitting than our pitching. I would have thought Jacoby would be the one to be let go.

    Here's a thought...with as many young guys, guys coming off of rehab, and veteran reclamation projects as the Red's budget next year will likely require...do they bring back Gullett? He's been out of the game for a few years but surely the mechanics of pitching haven't changed.
