I think what the Reds need is a manager who spits fire. Dusty is a nice guy, not an emotional in your face type of guy. Just look at the history of the Reds and notice when the manager is a Wuss, we get a Wussy team. When there is FIRE, the teams goes after them.
Jack M was a fire pistol, Reds win, Johnson was hard nosed with fire and the Reds won, LOU well we know how he is and the Reds won it all. Sparky Anderson was fire and guts and the Reds won all the time. Even Johnny Mac had fire in his eyes in 79 and the Reds were winning.
Too much baby footing has taken place since Jack took us to the playoffs. WHo do you remember the most as manager, Boone or Jack. Narron or Johnny Mac.
We have to go out and get a a guy with passion and not afraid to go get him and get in your face with attitude.
Any suggestions on who this person might be? It does not have to be a big name. Just some Heart, Soul, Passion and Attitude.
