    He's only at just over 80 pitches. At this point, he has a real good shot at finishing this puppy.

    Wow, thought Stubbs was dead meat.

    Same.



    Also when Justin Turner and Ike Davis play the right side of the IF, I get confused.

    IIRC, we had QS in the last 3 games of our losing streak too.

    I'm going to play devils advocate.

    Let's say the reds win the division and goes deep in the play-offs or even World series.

    Dusty does not have a contract for next year.

    Will he do what he did in San Francisco, and leave for a bigger payday like he did when he went to the Cubs?

    I'm assuming that is what happened. Why wouldn't the Giants offer him a contract after going to the WS?

    This is what happened right? It's been a while and I might have forgotten something about the situation in San Fran.

    I feel like defense at 3B against us has been great this year.

    Dusty has big leverage in negotiations. He'll be in demand and he could easily just retire. So the Reds or somebody is going to give him a big deal or he'll just go back to ESPN and enjoy his life.
