I do not fault Dusty Baker for the collapse of the Reds. He did not cause the injury to Johnny Ceuto. He did not cause the hitters to flail away with multiple opportunities to win at GABP. I do hope the man has enough sense to realize his medical problems are a signal he should retire now.

To state that Dusty Baker isn't at least somewhat culpable in his own hitters' "flailing away" at bad pitches exhibits a fundamental misunderstanding of Dusty Baker's philosophy as a manager and a coach.

Did I say he was at fault for anything? No, I didn't. His medical problems in Chicago were a concern. Plus, his lack of emotion I can't stand. I don't care about his past playoff records.

His lack of emotion? He is hired to be the manager of a big-league professional sport team, not be a cheerleader for a high school team. If his players are so immature they can only perform when their egos are pumped up by rah-rah-rah comments, perhaps he needs new players.

Never said he had to be a cheerleader. You're just coming up with stuff now.

I don't get to do this very often, so ....

What a nice surprise to arrive home from a weekend trip to find the Browns had beaten the Bengals.

Hmm. Um, how about the Cyclones? Won 3-2 in a shootout against Wheeling in their home opener. At least there is one Cincinnati team that knows how to win!

Have we all forgotten the UC Bearcats and their 5-0 season (??)
