Mismanage it or not, it's working all the way to first place.
Our starters and offense have been league average at best.
Only our bullpen has us at the top.
Exactly. Gosh, all I see in this thread is Dusty mismanaged this, left Cueto in too long, blah, blah, blah.
Baker went to mound in 8th inning. Not Price. He talked to his catcher and his NUMBER 1 starter and got their input and then left Cueto in. That is exactly what I want my manager doing - trusting his players. That is a good manager of people.
You people who complain are just complaining based on results. Its called Monday Morning Quarterbacking. In other words, just noise, IMO.
