Dusty Baker... THANK YOU CHICAGO !

Postby Stinkerlink » Sat Aug 27, 2005 1:26 pm

As a Northern California reseident I had to watch this guy botch decision after decision... waste arm after arm... and cry like a baby whenever he was criticized by the paper or talk radio.

His reputation as a "players manager" comes from the fact that he'll let an older veteran player keep playing even when they suck.

When I saw that the Cubs signed him I thought "Hmmm, Dusty managing some of the best young arms in all of baseball. This should be interesting." Sorry Chicago, this is what Dusty does. He overworks starting pitchers... makes inexplicable decisions in crunch time... and kisses Barry Bond's hiney.

Notice how the Giants didn't sign Russ Ortiz ? He was a Dusty favorite to pitch into the ground.

I'm sorry people but this is one of the most overrated managers of all time and please please please get rid of him Chicago. :-t

We've been over this many many times. People criticize Dusty and then it turns to flaming.

This thread serves no purpose.
