There is a mixture of players, managers and front office people that have combined to create this awesome team. I don't know why people try to rob Dusty of his role in the success, the results. You can only extract so much before it makes you look like you're slanting things in a biased way. Everyone deserves credit in as much as the credit is theirs to claim - and again, it's not cut and dry. But, ask the players, ask the GM, ask the owner, Dusty Baker deserves a lot of credit. Leaving him out in the cold is sour grapes.
