In some interviews during the spring Dusty said that they needed to change what they had done the last several years because it didn't work (speaking of Griffey and Dunn) so he may deserve some of that credit wanting a different style of team, and not pushing to bring those guys back. He's also a 3 time manager of the year, so it's not like he's not proven himself as a manager.
I agree as well.
Im not saying he has NOTHING to do with it.
But he certainly doesnt have Everything to do with it. As the OP was coming across.
