    Reds offer Dusty extension

    Fay reports. Dusty mulling it over. No details on the offer. Anyone know anything?

    Will everybody complain, or has he finally proved himself to The Sun Deck?

    I don't see the benefit to this. What if the team fails on the west coast again?

    I say give credit where it is due. If you rip the guy when they lose, you should tip your cap when they win.

    Well I will say, he deserves it after this year. While some of his lineups are headscratchers, he does have those weird lineups at the top of almost every important offensive category in the NL.

    He kept this young team focused and productive during and after rough patches (The sweeps). While at the same time he has done a good job of protecting our young starting pitchers. I got to say he has impressed me this year.

    There is no way to avoid giving him an extension. I think the should have waited until the season was over just in case something really bad happens, but everybody knew he would get an offer.

    Giving him a raise would be like signing a free agent after a career year.

    Resigning him isnt a bad thing though. Dusty wont find a better place to manage.

    He's done a nice job of handling the young pitching this year, the guys like him, and he's provided leadership during rocky moments.

    He deserves it.

    What exactly is a "Dusty hater?" Does one qualify by offering any type of criticism?
    It sounds like Orwellian baseballspeak to me.

    I think a Dusty hater consists of those with the FIRE DUSTY signature. Orwellian baseball speak? Social injustice you refer to? I think Dusty is doing just fine. Also, I am a white male who appreciates seeing an African American manager succeed at this level.

    With that being said, I am all for the due criticism of his tactical decisions during a game. However as has been mentioned on this board, the man is loyal to his players and for the most part(with some obvious exceptions) gets them to play at a very high level. Most of all though, prepares them to WIN.

    In conclusion, there have been many calling for his firing. Please, riddle me this....

    The man has led this team to being what 17+ games over in the middle of August. You PAY for that buddy.
