Re: Dusty Proofing" the lineup??!!
Jocketty and the ownership group picked Baker, so I don't think it can be called "Dusty Proofing" at all. They will simply acquire players who fit what Dusty likes to do. If you get a speedy player at the top of the order who has a high OBP, is that "Dusty Proofing"? I call that acquiring a good player.
Let's not turn this into another "In Spite of Dusty" vs. "97 wins, BOOM" thread
