You can't just heap praise based on results without evaluating the process.
Shuffle the cards, likely similar results. The team does not have two top of the order guys on the roster, so what was he supposed to do? I know, Ryan Hanigan as folks blindly look at high OBP.
Dusty has managed the bullpen masterfully all season and helped the team navigate through losing their star for 1/3 of the season by performing better than they have with him. Sorry, your criticisms sound like sour grapes and nitpicking at this stage.
