    I will never get why this guy gets continually hired. Game on the line he brings in Treinen to face lefty Frazier..... naturally 3 runs later he brings in lefty Romero.

    Major gaffe in Game 6 of the 2002 World Series when he lifted Russ Ortiz with a 5-0 lead.

    We all know how that ended.

    Remember when Dusty's young son was a batboy and almost caused a major collision at home plate. Think the son's name was Darren and Dusty was managing the Cubs.?

    Yes. Dusty' big ploy was sitting Darren in his lap in the interview room to deflect tough questions.

    If I remember correctly he was managing the Giants at the time. I think it was JT Snow who was rounding third and standing right by home plate was Dusty's kid picking up the bat, Snow scooped him up as he touched home plate

    He let Ortiz keep the ball as a souvenir since he thought the Giants were going to win the World Series. I wonder what Ortiz did with that ball after they lost.

    Fast Forward to the next season when DUMBsty had no one warming up in the bullepn in B8 with Prior at 120+ pitches. People blame Bartman when SS Alex Gonzalez deserves 90% of the blame and DUMBsty the other 10% for not having someone warming up in the pen for someone with that high a pitch count
    The mind is a terrible thing to waste unless we are talking about the MORONS who post at Covers where the collective Sports Gambling IQ for the ENTIRE site is.................4!!! and even that might be too high
