I agree. The Dusty bashing on every little blurb is amazing. "Know how to pitch" and "know how to win" are practically interchangeable in baseball lingo. It's merely sloppy vernacular NOT some great indicator of how awful a manager Baker is. And I'd point out - he DOES have 40 years IN the game, not in the stands, in front of TVs or radios or calculators.
