Billy never really stayed in any one place long enough to see if his teams went downhill after he was there for a while.
Dusty stayed quite a while in SF and while they plotzed after his first season, he got them back to the Series. Dusty coddles his players - especially the vets. Billy coddled no one. Billy was a drunk and had problems off the field with his fists. Other than almost getting his kid ran over, I don't recall any problems with Dusty. Billy was known as a genius in the dugout as far as strategy went. Dusty, not so much. After thinking about it, I really think they have more differences than similarities.
Can't. Read. Everything.
(And if I take the time to read until the end of a thread to see if someone else already made the point I was planning to make...I usually forget what the point was by the end of the thread...does that make sense?)
Never overlook the obvious
