But you and I know that's not going to happen. Dusty won't employ logic if it means changing.
One other thought for you on this. I get frustrated all the time at how so many seasoned managers seem to stick with what doesn't work too long.
But, always trying to see things from their perspective, there's another side to those stories which has to do with leadership.
Sometimes--certainly not all the time--a manager sticking with someone not doing well is rewarded in big ways. Arroyo good example of that this series. Also, much of the time, we fans (however knowledgeable and impassioned) simply don't have all the info that the manager has which informs the decisions.
I'm big on measuring people on their results. Dusty is still TBD for this year. If we win tomorrow and move on, I'd be loathe to call for a new manager next year. I know many are calling for his head already. But c'mon, though he hasn't won the WS, his career and accomplishments deserve some respect and some benefit of whatever doubts, don't they?
