    We have at least eight of these everyday. Maybe somebody needs to start an official thread and get it pinned to the top.

    Re: Fire Dusty

    That was the worst part of winning the division last year.......knowing they would extend his managerial contract.

    I can't wait til Dusty gets replaced some day.

    Dusty is not going anywhere he has 3 year contract and Big Bob is not going to eat that money.

    Re: Fire Dusty

    Everytime I see these threads I respond with the same question. Ok, Fire Dusty. And hire who? Dusty is not the closer that comes into the 9th and gives the game up to the Brewers last week...

    How about anybody who won't make the same stupid lineup mistakes over and over again, then get defensive and talk down when people dare to question him?

    I'd like to see Rick Sweet given a shot. Or Billy Hatcher. Or Chris Speier. Or Bob Brenly. Or Alyssa Milano. Seriously, anybody else.
    FIRE DUSTY Never mind. The man is clearly a genius.

    Alyssa Milano would be interesting. I bet the players would give her their time.

    Makes sense, 3 1/2 out of first and fire the manager that led you to your first playoff birth in 15 years. Solid thought process.

    Sabermetrics you want, how about Bob Geren or Ken Macha? They are both available. Dusty has proven his teams can't win (don't let the numbers fool you) baseball games. Is Bill James available? Sabermetrics are really working well for the A's lately.

    I've figured out Baker12 is Glen in Mason.

    Glen Mason, was a pretty good football coach at Minnesota

    As for Dusty, he was the manager when the Reds won the division last year. I know as HATERS, it pains you to admit that.
