What makes you think we are going to the playoffs? Baker does not "get teams there" every single year. And we don't care about "getting there." The playoffs are a crapshoot to be sure but there are key moments when you can make decisions that change the impact of the game, see Collins leaving Harvey in. Total Dusty move. Expect Scherzer to be left in with 120 pitches and give it up on a homer. The team's glaring weaknesses are also the manager's. The bullpen this year is going to be an exercise in futility, Dusty needs an idiot proof bullpen like the Royals.

you're right, Baker doesn't get teams there every year. If, by your standards, that makes him a bad manager, then what, by those same standards, does that make black?
