Things that Dusty says, but I don't understand

Chapter 432:

Evidently EdE needs to start looking over his shoulder again.  Keppinger "was going to play third, but with Jerry (Hairston Jr.) out, we need him to play short"?? Is Dusty insane?

Yea, everyone looooves Kepp.  Yea, EdE still chucks the occasional ball into the 3rd deck.  But come on - the offensive difference between EdE/Kepp and Kepp/Janish more than makes up for the defensive difference, doesn't it?  Does Dusty have a "scrappy white guy" quota he has to meet?

Dear Reds Management and Fans:  Edwin Encarnacion is only 25 years old; he just looks like he's 30.  He's obviously still growing as a player, and he's also obviously pretty high strung.  Please quit screwing with him.  Please quit expecting him to anchor the team.  Throw him out there every day, day in and day out, and allow him to grow.  Is he struggling offensively?  Sure, but he's still got an OPS+ of 97 - and his raw OPS puts him smack dab in the middle of MLB 3B this year.

Didn't Dusty just proclaim to the world how much he loves young people?  In the long run, EdE's success is 1000% more important to the Reds than Janish's or Keppinger's, and he's younger than either one.
