    Dusty Baker is awful

    Baker has to be the worst manager in baseball. Come on bring in a rookie in a tie ball game after your team just tied it up. He has no idea how to manage a pitching staff let alone a whole team. He also tends to put young players in situations were they cant succeed.Ill will be very happy the day ole Bob gets Dusty out of GABP it will be a day for Reds fans to rejoice.

    How dare you blame it on the players, its always Bakers fault. And 99% of the time when complaining about Baker, its a second guess.

    Just a miserable amateurish perforformance by Ondrusek. First he can't get it over the plate to Ryan, then he serves it on a tee to Albert, then he completely falls apart.

    On the bright side, Cueto looked great. I think he looked much more mature than in past years. And a great comeback after hitting Molina in the 6th.

    On the bright side 2: We won't be subjected to anymore whining obout O. Cabrera fof at least 24 hours.

    Who should he have brought in in the sixth inning of the game. We have already established that he is not allowed to bring in Lincoln, he had already brought in Herrea, Rhodes and Masset are the seventh and eighth inning guys so that leaves Ondrusek and Owings. SO I guess that means that he should have brought in Owings so now he is the worst manager in baseball because he brought in Ondrusek ( who was dominant during spring training and pitched very well during the first game) over Micah Owings, Really?

    Careful, GIDP. Some of these cats have led very bad previous lives, and so were reincarnated as Toothpick apologists.

    Great post. In fact, Baker made one decision that worked brilliantly- leaving Cueto in after he hit Molina. (Can you imagine the ranting, raving and second guessing if Cueto hadn't gotten the job done in that spot). Far too often the complaining about Baker is either a second guess after the fact or is simply mindless.

    Still a better investment than Harang making $10 million.

    So the players doing their jobs is bailing out their manager, interesting perspective?

    Yes, because if you dare not to blame Dusty for everything including being the second shooter on the grassy knoll you are an apologist. If you have a problem with the analysis I have presented in one of my post then present a counter argument or you could take the grown up way out and just call me names.

    Dusty lost this game when he decided to start Gomes and Stubbs against RIGHT hand pitcher Wainwright. He should be fired by morning! He solidified the loss by his dumb butt managing.

    They were wrong. Play the best odds. None of the outfielders are soo good that they shouldn't be considered for a swap with a opposite batting bench player.

    This was the seventh inning, not the sixth. And you said it yourself,
    Rhodes and Masset are the seventh and eighth inning guys. So you answered your own question.

    Not at all referring to you specifically, kfm. I've always been somewhat bewildered that more RZ posters don't call for his head....you know, like Cubs fans do whenever he returns to Wrigley.

    I'll never get over those lineups from hell...batting Taveras/Gonzalez 1/2 last year. IMO, that's a firing offense. Dude just can't comprehend certain concepts. Dinosaur/tar pit analogy is appropriate.
