    Re: Dusty Baker: Teflon Manager

    I know I feel alot better with Dusty at the helm then I did with Narron, Miley, Boone, Knight and even Trader Jack.
    I was in the ORG once, best 6 months of my life.

    Any particular reason why?

    He has a better track record than any of those other managers save for McKeon and will command respect in the locker room unlike those other managers save for McKeon.

    Track record isn't the most important thing. It's the decisions they make and the respect they have. Unfortunately, Baker only has the later of the two. Recent history shows that using talented younger players pays off and that being patient at the plate helps bring in runs. Baker doesn't believe in either one.

    Read my post earlier on this thread. The reasoning for the optimism in Baker's hiring is similar to the signing of Eric Milton.
