    I don't see any hatred. If Cairo was better that Rolen, 3rd would be his job every day. He is not. Nobody needs an off day 3 games into the season, not even Sachel Paige.

    Dusty is set in his ways, besides being an idiot.

    Its not hatred toward Cairo, its toward Dusty I was talking about. The man has been in the game forever, he has to know something!!!! Just because he doesn't call the game the way you would doesn't mean he is an idiot!!!!

    I believe Krawitham meant to say that Arroyo should never have come out for the 7th. Definitely, after he coughed up the lead, he should have come out.
    A summer watching a bad Reds' team, is still a pretty good summer.

    I dont mind dusty playing cairo at all. He's clutch a lot. And if this is what it takes to keep rolen healthy were lucky to have a guy like cairo to fill in and play hard. So we should utilize him.

    As for dustys decisions i have no real complaints thus far.

    Only thing i may have done was tie ball game go ahead run on third. And not bringing in chapman then. We needed a guy to strike somebody out in that situation to keep the game tied. Chapman is really our only guy for that case.

    Typical short term thinking here with no foresight into the bigger picture. True, nobody would need a day off on game three, but the Reds need Rolen in September just as much as they do in April. If you keep running him out there with no rest he will break down. There is no reason to over use him when you have a capable backup in Cairo.

    It's obvious that no matter what Dusty does, the usual suspects will come here and bash him. The same people that clamor for Chapman to go 2-3 inning in a relief appearance, for example, will be the same people that bash him for ruining his arm if he ends up on the DL. I even saw another thread that was killing him for his alleged CF-SS 1-2 in every lineup. Funny, I thought BP was leading off and Cozart off to a great start in the 2 hole.

    Sorry, but I just can't stand the bashing of the manager with little to no logic supporting their continued, ridiculous claims. Same with those who want to trash Stubbs, Arroyo, etc.

    I've been a Baker-basher for some time, but for some reason a strange peace has descended upon me.

    I suspect it's because part of me senses a big year ahead.

    Dusty seems to be a great guy. I believe he is far from a great manager. His teams approaches at the plate just don't get it done. His catering stubbornness to certain players the past few years is not something that can even be argued.

    Again, I think he would be tremendous with grand kids.....but I'm beyond tired of him managing the Reds.
