I wouldn't want to throw away last year's pennant.
BUT........I'm in the camp that thinks Dusty is overrated. I don't care if he had won more games than any manager in history, no manager/head coach in my 46 year lifetime has made me scratch my head more. Most of the teams he's had over the years, had great players and were destined to win.
He may be good for team chemistry, but he babysits his players feelings too much. Frankly, if I played on one of his teams, I'd be pissed at how long he leaves a pitcher in when everyone in the stadium can see that the wheels are falling off but Dusty. Or I'd be pissed that he's continuing to start a .190 hitting left fielder for 2 1/2 months that is probably costing us wins when we clearly have better options on the roster. I'd be pissed at alot of moves he makes.
I've said it before. This team has won despite Dusty. He's just lucky to have had talented teams.
