Dusty Baker

first_imgI  was out of town when Dusty’s tenure in Cincinnati came to an end.  After their loss to Pittsburgh, I am sure his dismissal came as no surprise to most baseball fans.  You can’t fire the multi-millionaires who do not perform up to their potential, so the scapegoat is always the manager first.  I have talked to several people, and most feel Dusty’s heart was not in the game this year.  I think his near miss with his heart  attack in Chicago while managing the Reds a while back left Dusty scared.  It seemed at times that his focus in the dugout, especially early in the season, was not always there.  All coaches will tell you that the players under you can sense when the coach may not be 100% into his job.  This may not have been the case, but it might explain some of the lackluster play of the Reds this year.  The loss of Ryan Ludwig for most of the season was a big factor in the Reds anemic offense at times.  When Ryan came back, he was not the same player and he really hurt the Reds lineup by playing.  Dusty is so true to his players that to him left field was Ryan’s place, and he was going to give it to him despite his shortcomings this season.  When he chose Cueto to start the most important game of the year, Dusty put himself in a win or else situation.  When you have four other starters with 10+ wins on your team, most people said “why Cueto?”  Not one of these incidents got him fired by itself, but when a “super team” loses early, heads will fall.  As I said earlier, it is always the manager first.  Dusty deserved better, but this a money game and not a sentiment game.last_img read more

first_imgAdvertisementUEFA’s 2024 host announcement event in Nyon confirmed that it will be Germany to host the 17th edition of UEFA European Championships. Germany beat Turkey’s stubborn bid to be home to another major international footballing event 18 years after the World Cup 2006.Image : Germany confirmed as Euro 2024 hosts. Source : UEFA.comBerlin’s Olympic Stadium will host the final of the 24-team tournament, with 51 games scheduled for up to 32 days in June and July. The nine other cities that will be used for games are Cologne, Dortmund, Düsseldorf, Frankfurt, Gelsenkirchen, Hamburg, Leipzig, Munich and Stuttgart.Turkey failed to secure yet another bid in the UEFA bidding race , raising their tally of four failed bids in last five bidding races. UEFA executive committee were inclined to vote for Germany given its high quality infrastructure and steadfast rate of development. Turkey’s bid failed to secure votes among UEFA executives due to the need to upgrade airports, railways, roads and stadiums. The Turkish economy is not sturdy at the moment and their human and civil rights record was flagged up by the UEFA evaluation report.Fans can keep their aspirations up for another glamorous event under the same stars where Lionel Messi scored his first World Cup goal, Zidane bowed out of football with a red card in the World Cup final, the battle of Nuremberg took place and Marcelo Lippi lit up his victory cigar after guiding Italy to the World Cup trophy in Olympic Stadium.All the key information as Germany are selected as UEFA #EURO2024 hosts  👇— UEFA (@UEFA) September 27, 2018 Advertisementlast_img read more
