So says the headline on this article by Teh Fay. Well, good for him.
Ã¢â‚¬Å“People can do and say what they want,Ã¢â‚¬Â Baker said. Ã¢â‚¬Å“I know what the deal is. People are looking to blame somebody. ThatÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s just human nature. Hey, IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢m in charge on the field. Whatever happens is ultimately my responsibility. I have no problem with that.Ã¢â‚¬Â
Baker doesnÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t do himself any favors by staying with struggling players too long, i.e. Willy Taveras and Corey Patterson. His lineups leave the Sabermatic set shaking their heads on a daily basis.
Hey, John Fay…what’s “sabermatic” mean?
More from Dusty:
But he manages the same way he did when he took teams to the postseason four of seven years.
He asked for patience Saturday Ã¢â‚¬â€œ never a popular concept with fans.
Okay, I’m going to be patient. Especially with a leadoff hitter putting up numbers like .237/.273/.284. I’m sure Dusty is right. Willy Taveras will come around eventually.
Why can’t you guys just trust Dusty?
