Here is a snippet of a text message from Jay Bruce:
“It’s obviously a bit shocking,” Bruce said. “I understand that it’s a business and when teams don’t accomplish what’s expected of them there are changes, but any way you slice it, Dusty was an integral part of turning the organization around. The Cincinnati Reds became relevant again with Dusty at the helm, and that’s something people should never forget.”
