Re: Worst Thing That Happened Was Winning Division In 2010
Dusty does make some moves (or doesn't) that do leave me scratching my head. But doesn't every manager? When a guy wins as many games as Dusty has, he is doing most things very well. I don't think Dusty is perfect, no man is. He is very successful at what he does. I don't drink the Dusty Baker "kool aid," but I try to be realistic. What manager is going to do better with what we have taking the field every day? I have to give Dusty the benefit of the doubt, he was a Marine. Semper Fi, do or die. The idea that winning the division last year was detrimental to the success of the team this year is absurd. The poor off-season decision making of the front office, and reversal of fortune are the reason this team is not performing up to our standards. You have to use your brains and analyze things, knee jerk reactions are far too abundant on this board, lately.
Sorry if my bad spelling or poor grammar is offensive to anyone. I don't want to go down that road.
