    Does he want Dusty back? After all, at some point, he deserves his own guy.

    Those who are looking for major league experience should be reminded that Sparky Anderson had no major league experience and seems to have worked out. World Series victories in both leagues, and inducted into the Baseball Hall of Fame.

    I think Dusty will be back. I think with what has happened this year, they will want him back and he would not want to leave. If they do have to change, I would not want LaRussa, no way no how!!!!

    Joe Torre. He has family ties to Cincy. If not him then Sweet Lou. Would be nice to bring him outta retirement and stick it to the Cubs just one more time.

    As far as Dusty is concerned ... good riddance. Torre is a great manager. That would be my vote. The Reds are in a position where I think they would do well with a young up and coming manager in the minors (like Jim Tracy when he came up). I can't think of any names, but with the Red's personal, I think that would be a good fit.

You also have to remember that Walt and TLR are very good friends. I know you guys don't like him but think about it like this. Where ever TLR goes, Dave Duncan goes. If Dave Duncan touches that Reds pitching staff, well your team will win several World Series this decade. It might be worth putting up with TLR's antics for Dave Duncan.
    I don't want anything to do with TLR even if it does bring Duncan to town. I'd take Duncan on his own and move Price to manager in a heartbeat, though.

    This season is a good indication on why they need him back.

    Let him jump. The Reds are 7 in front despite him. Good example yesterday. Pujols is hitting .143 since the ankle injury so now is the time to pitch to him. He walked him on reputation only just like he batted Griffey 3rd on reputation only. Hope he leaves.

    How about Trader Jack? I know he's like 80 now, but that guy could manage circles around Dusty. :

    Without Dusty Baker the Reds are not leading this division right now, period.

    His gameday gaffes are offset by the leadership in the locker room that has kept this team resilient all year long.
