Will Dusty Survive?

August 16, 2013

Dusty Baker has one of the best records as a big league manager. However, his history has been that he brings a team into contention but just can’t take them all the way. I haven’t heard much grumbling yet to change managers. If the Reds finish as low as third this year, you begin to wonder if Dusty has met his Waterloo in Cincinnati. It would be a shame, because for the most part, he has done a great job keeping the Reds among the elite in baseball He did the same in Chicago, and except for the infamous left field fan interference, he would have had the Cubs in the World Series. Last year at Cincinnati he had the 2-0 lead against the Giants and the team totally collapsed at home. The Giants went on to win the World Series. Even though Cincinnati management seems to be less impulsive than some other organizations, you wonder if Dusty can survive if the Reds do not make the World Series. No one seems to care, but the Reds have had a lot of injuries this year. They were picked to win big in the National League, and unless they get very hot the last six weeks, the wolves may start to howl. We will know in the next few weeks. If they win big and make the playoffs, the month of July will be forgotten quickly.

South Decatur Elementary School has introduced a new fundraising program called My School Color Run. The My School Color Run program aims to go beyond traditional fundraising. Rather than sell goods, the program aims to engage the entire student body in a fitness initiative that aims to instill a life-long healthy way of living. On Sept. 3, at 9 a.m., the students, staff, and community of South Decatur Elementary School will walk, jog, and run their way toward a healthier life while raising funds for the PTO’s Playground Revitalization Project. The color run will be held at South Decatur Jr-Sr High School, and will be open to the public. This is an untimed fun run. Participants will pass through four color stations throughout the course and end with a massive color toss at the My Color Run Post-Race Party. Participants will be treated to refreshments, music, and fun following the run. Interested participants of all ages can register by visiting www.SouthDecaturMSCR.eventbrite.com, or by completing a paper registration form prior to the event.
