Re: Should Dusty Baker Receive an Extension?
Ultimate success is no longer judged over 162 games. Your grade will be determined by the final exam. Success is assessed during the first three weeks of October, when a hot pitcher, a zoned-in hitter, a series of double play balls or a favorable call from the umpire can make all the difference.
Fool's errand to put all your baseball hopes in the postseason. If it happens, consider yourself lucky. If not, enjoy the ride.
