Listening to Kevin Goldstein from Baseball Perspectives on Ken Broo's show this morning talk about how Dusty really does not like starting rookies or one year guys over veteran players.
Just wondering if this line of thinking has ultimately cost the Reds their season. Yonder Alonso continues to sit the bench which makes me wonder why in the world he was brought up from Louisville. It took them forever to call up Cozart when it looks like he's clearly the best option at the shortstop position. If Mesoraco is ready, why not get him up here and put him behind the dish?
I usually don't doubt the manager. I know Dusty Baker knows more about the game than I ever will. Just can't help but wonder why our young talent is not afforded the opportunity to play sooner than what they are.
