Come on, guys. Hasn't Dusty gotten Manager Awards and taken a few teams to the post season? He knows what he's doing. He expects alot out of his players and doesn't believe in pampering. In all honesty, Prior would let him know if he couldn't handle it. So everyone looking at Dusty like he's nuts should look at Prior for fault if he injures himself again.
First, it probably won't be a big deal for Prior to pitch on his normal 4 days rest.
I have to disagree with you about giving Dusty any credit for anything his teams have ever done. Dusty is about the dumbest manager I have ever witnessed. He couldn't manage a Dairy Queen, much less a mlb team. He routinely is outmanaged by opposing managers. Doesn't believe in pampering? That is exactly what he does. he is the most sniveling yo-yo you'll ever see. He constantly makes excuses for his players. When the blame falls squarely on himself, he shows up to the post game press room with his kid in tow so that he can hide behind his kid. I live in Illinois and hear about Dusty all the time on chicago sports radio. Dusty is an idiot. He has always had solid teams and his success in SF is more attributable to the GM and the players than anything Dusty did. It's like saying that Phil Jackson was the reason the Bulls won 6 championships...
Ok, I've vented. sorry for the soapbox speech, but Dusty is way overrated.
