Re: The Excellance of Dusty Baker
Considering that a lot of fans and media criticized Dusty for not only pitching Arroyo in Game 2 but criticized him for pitching him at all and criticized Dusty for starting Rolen instead of Frazier at 3rd on Sunday, I think a lot of those same fans and media may want to step back and admit they just may not know more than Dusty after all.
It's a results game to be sure. But give credit where and when credit is due. If Jay Bruce hits a 3-0 pitch out for a home run in the bottom of the 9th inning to win the game for the Reds, are people actually going to criticize him and the manager for not taking on 3-0?
