    hmmm, wish I would have posted something about that
    ...the 2-2 to Woodsen and here it comes...and it is swung on and missed! And Tom Browning has pitched a perfect game! Twenty-seven outs in a row, and he is being mobbed by his teammates, just to the thirdbase side of the mound.

    I like Dusty and the players seem to love playing for him. I think Walt makes some moves to improve the clubs weak areas and hopefully we get a new hitting coach. These guys need another voice with the exception of 3 or 4 of them.

    I don't know if he's ever coached, or if he would even be interested in coaching, but I've always thought that Kevin Mitchell would make a great hitting coach.

    Actually he has. In 2000, while working as a manager for the minor league Sonoma County Crushers, Mitchell was suspended after punching another teamís manager in the face during a brawl.

    Yep. And I like Walt, but Walt is known as a Traditionalist just as much as Dusty. That's a fact.

    And I keep hearing that Walt, somehow, didn't want Dusty to return, wanted to replace him, and that Castellini obviously has "over-ruled" Walt. Where has that ever been indicated?

    So he's one of those that believes in swinging to make contact?

    How could they follow his instructions? The guy talks (races) like he's had 10 cups of Expresso, 5 Red Bulls, and a gallon of 5 Hour Energies! LOL

    Oh, man! We should have waited to extend Dusty until talking to Jason Giambi like the Rockies are.
