A winner? not in my opinion, a winner has rings.
Billy Beane isn't a winner? Bobby Cox is just BARELY a winner?
Dusty has won at two different places. The Prior/Wood stuff is overdone in my opinion. It's more about the organizational attitude that allows pitch counts like that to happen. Krivsky was schooled under Terry Ryan. He isn't going to allow any manager to threaten young arms.
And I've never seen a manager blamed for pitching injuries than Dusty Baker. Why is that? There is nothing more than random correlation in my opinion. Everyone knows how risky young arms are anyway.
One more thing. Anyone seen Kerry Wood and Mark Prior lately? They are completely different looking than in the past. Not saying they 'roided themself into injuries. Wouldn't be shocked though.
