    It's about time the guys who actually want to win badly enough to actually concentrate and play the game right for 9 innings (like Cueto and Votto) started "getting in peoples faces."

    Wow, you speak the truth. It amazes me how the players manager label regarding Dusty has turned into this thing where Dusty does not want to say anything negative to his players or hurt their feelings. I have no idea what Dusty is like when none of us fans are around. The only thing I can use to educate myself on this topic is from statements from players. I have heard Griffey talk about how he was summoned to the principals office, interviews where Gomes talked about how Dusty gets on guys and will tell you things you don't want to hear but need to hear and numerous players on xm radio talk about how dusty gets on his players. We all heard about him yelling at them and calling them punks during a tirade after a sloppy embarrassing loss during the 2010 season. We did not hear this from Dusty but from the players. I will never understand why people need to see athletes berated publicly. I am a boss and when I need to say something to an employee I do it in private. I think that is the way we would all want to be treated. This never wants to hurt guys feelings, at least from what players have stated publicly is a creation of fans who don't like Dusty. Dusty does enough things to legitimately criticize him for, I don't get the need to make up more reasons.

    Whatever Dusty may be doing, it's sure not working, as we play crappy "loose baseball" even during our few winning streaks.

    The only time we played decent baseball was 2010 when, if press reports are to be believed, Rolen and Cabrera went to great lengths to instill a "COMPETING WITH OUR OPPONENTS" vs. "PLAYING BASEBALL" mentality.

    Those of you out there who don't even know what I'm talking about can just disregard the post. (I think you're beyond educating )

    This team has come a long way since the days of Dunn laughing after biffing an easy catch in left field and then going back to the clubhouse to relax in a recliner with Jr. I'm just glad we have guys who are upset when they make mistakes.

    Exactly...although thinking of Dusty acting like R. Lee Ermey in Full Metal Jacket is awesome.
