i have no idea what dusty is doing. i'm inclined to think he's an insensate, potentially unbalanced and perhaps stupid prima donna -- never ascribe to malice that which can be sufficiently explained by incompetence, after all. perhaps he's trying to force the cubs into clearly firing him for general ridiculousness on top of failure. others think otherwise. what is virtually beyond question, however, is that he should not have a role on this team, and would have been fired or demoted by a coherent and involved management this week.
rozner speculates on what is motivating the man behind the curtain as he bewilders all observers yet again.
it's easy to see why the team has quit on him. would you put anything on the line for the great and powerful oz?
