    I would love to see him on the bench next year - but I would not trust Dusty to use only part time
    The older I get - the better I was

    and yes - I hate the Cardinals (Reds fan since 1958)

    The word "choke" is cheap, overused and merely a substitute for real analysis.

    Having said that, this season unfortunately will be defined by their inability to win just one of three straight games at home....including one game in which only one hit was allowed in regulation play.

    But what are you going to do (except hold out that last bit of hope for a miracle)?

    It's pretty telling that there have been no contract talks yet.

    Probably b/c he coached the team that blew a 2-0 series lead and only needed one of 3 at home. That might be it.

    I'd honestly take Spier as manager over Dusty. I like Dusty, but he doesn't make good decisions when it counts.

    Not pulling Latos for Lecure today probably cost us the game.

    I said the exact same thing to my son as we're watching the game. That's why I don't want Stubbs back either.

    Add in huge health concerns and it would be foolish to sign him to a multiyear multimillion dollar contract.

    On the Radio last weekend Tracy Jones said his sources said Dusty had to win WS or he wasnt going to be brought back. Whatever that's worth.

    Nothing that comes out of Tracy's mouth is truthful.
