Dusty: This is what 4 million buys you ?

I'll preface this by saying that Hendry should be fired for assembling this crap called a baseball team.

That being said, I'm trying to figure out what Dusty does for his 4 million a year.

Is he paid that for his greatness in baseball strategy?

Is he paid that for keeping a team focused?

Is he paid that because "free agents will want to play for Dusty"?

Is he paid that for his ability to see something wrong in a player and help correct it?

His supporters will say that noone could win with this team.  

My question is:  Does that mean Dusty needs an absolutely perfect lineup with no injuries to show his greatness?  Because my reply would be that it wouldn't be too hard to manage under that scenario.  Dusty seems to do well when he has one of the greatest chemically enhanced players in history to fall back on.  But when it's time to manage on the fly and adapt, that's not what he's about.

I would say that given the rosters, Joe Girardi has shown that he's twice the "manager" that Dusty Baker is.

Fire away, everyone.
