his super 2 date has passed so it should be soon .. may 27 starts a homestand and june 2 starts a roadtrip so those are 2 likely days..that coupled w/corey patterson total ineffectiveness (3 for last 34 -- 2 rbis in last 20 gms -- no walks since april 27 !!) should get him up SOON

The Dusty Factor, as I know it, is running barely 20yr old arms into the ground and effectively ruining their careers, and favoring veteran bats over young ones to the point it severely hurts the team.

So far he's the same ole Dusty...

The fact that it's C Patterson - with whom Dusty has a history - makes me think he'll be even more patient with the veteran and delay Bruce's arrival at least a good 3-4 weeks beyond what any reasonable manager would do here. No inside scoop - just tempering my expectations with Dusty - from experience.

I have my doubts. Serious doubts that we see the Deserving 3rd OF for the Reds show up to work anytime soon.
