The Cincinnati Reds have fired Dusty despite him leading them into the playoffs the last two seasons.
”Just the way we played lately was a factor,” Jocketty said. ”But I think the way the season ended was kind of the final decision.
”The last six games certainly played a big part in this.”
”We appreciate what Dusty did here for six years and getting us to where we were,” Jocketty added.
”Although he’s the one that ran the club every day, there are a lot of areas we can look at that could be to blame here, including the front office, the players, the coaching staff. It’s not only just Dusty.
