A little help….

We don't ask for much around here, but they're running this little contest for the best sports blog of 2005 at Red Reporter. We're currently in 4th place with a paltry 175 votes from a readership of 4000+ and growing. You folks can do better. I think it's a small price to pay, 300+ days of great baseball content versus 30 seconds of your time to go and vote for us. Seems fair!! Plus Al at Bleed Cubbie Blue just called us out and is determined to beat us, you're not going to let that happen are you? Seriously though, we don't get paid for this stuff so random acts of acknowledgement are kind of nice, your votes would be very much appreciated.

Big John Stud:
"Of course, you'll make excuses for every poor decision Dusty makes and continue to be a Baker cheerleader."

Just like you will make excuses for every mistake hendry makes to put the blame then on Baker, as you are a Baker hater. See it goes both ways.

Bleeding Blue:
"Your response was that Baker gets killed for making mistakes, one would certainly imply that was an admition that he made a mistake, and you're simply mad that we aren't blaming Hendry for his problems too."

No, YOU would imply that as you are trying to put words in my mouth. I CLEARLY stated my thoughts on the topic a few posts before that. You barely blame hendry for anything. Even keeping the manager you all HATE.

So what happens if Dusty leaves and hendry still can't win, then will it still be Dusty's fault??

No, and that's insulting since I've never blamed Dusty for anything that wasn't his responsiblity.

Chad,

Stone is Captain Obvious.

Ranch,

You're an idiot. The two words mean the EXACT same thing. Please do not try to sound intelligent. Good job using www.dictionary.com, however. Thanks.

The bottom line is he is BORING. I don't need to sit around listening to a guy who feeds me boring, obvious analysis in a monotonous, sleep-inducing drone.

Dribble and drivel are synonyms, but their usage is not interchangable. In this case you used the wrong one.

And again, who do you think is a good analyst? Just ranting against what you don't like is boring.

What did you say on the other thread...sometimes the truth hurts. :)

You know, we should help get "BCB" into 2nd place..

I blame the Dusty for things that are the manager's responsibility. I blame Hendry for things that are the GM's responsiblity.

I don't know why you have such a hard time understanding this very simple concept.

And the GM's responsibiilty is to hire a competent manager....something you don't think we have. If Dusty costs this team SOOOO many games, the GM should fire him and help the team. By not doing so he is costing the team wins. I can't understand how you don't see that.

I have complained about that many times, but as I also have said, Hendry has bosses too, and if they don't want to eat Dusty's contract, Hendry doesn't have a choice. If Hendry approves an extension for Dusty after another underperformance, then I will be singing Bye Bye Hendry right along side you.

I agree, and I'm glad you agree that Dusty should be fired.

Since that's not actually what you believe, then you should really stop using the 'since Dusty hasn't been fired its Hendry's fault excuse.' Its contradicts your actually beliefs.

More imporantly, as long as Dusty is manager, he will be responsible for what happens on the field, and as such he will have to take the blame for mistakes that happen under his watch.

sometimes the truth hurts. :)

It does, but it has to be the truth first. Lies don't count.
I have never blamed Dusty for anything his isn't responsible for.

You should either back up your libelous statement or apologize for it.

But the notion that Dusty Baker drove Stone away is pure, unadulterated horseshit

exactly correct. stone took a limo.
