Dusty is simply sticking with Cozart. And against a lefty it has a better chance of working.
Against LHP sure....just like we used to say about Stubbs as well.
Baker's intangibles that we cannot see as a manager must be off the charts with his inability to understand match ups against LHP and platoon systems.
I wish Earl Weaver was his mentor....instead of Lasorda.
