A highly critcized, but very underrated manager. Personally, I love the guy, although I know many on this board feel quite the opposite.

I've said repeatedly to not judge him this year by what he does in April and May. With only one week gone in June, he has them playing well, winners of 5 of their last 8.

I think Dusty is becoming less 'stubborn' with his on the field decisions and probably gets along with his team as well as any manager in baseball. One complaint would be that he probably needs a top notch pitching coach that he can bounce ideas off of, he tends to overextend and then burn off pitchers IMO but not as bad as say Larussa at 'overmanaging'.

A players coach with a warm personality and a great handlers of ego who has zero ability to in game manage or handle a pitching staff.

As was said by some Chicago sports talk guy when Mr. Baker was managing the Cubs.."For 21 hours a day, he's the best manager in baseball."
