He's great for 162, but he's a complete disaster when it counts the most.

Dusty has won playoff series in the past. In fact he's been as far as game 7 of the world series as a manager. He got a medium talented team on paper to win 97 games last year. Who are you going to hire that would do such a better job? They lost a tough series last year where their ace went down in the first inning of the first game and they had to scramble to use their rotation effectively. Bailey pitched a gem game three but no run support, Latos got shelled game five and the comeback fell short. What manager changes these things?

Since taking a 3-2 series lead in the 2002 World Series here's what Dusty's teams have done in the last 10 games with a series lead:

1-9

2002 WS - Up 3-2, lost next two
2003 NLDS - Up 2-1, lost game 4 and won game 5
2003 NLCS - Up 3-1, lost three straight
2012 NLDS - Up 2-0, lost 3 straight at home

Pathetic!

I think Jim Riggleman would do a damn good job. Did a great job with the Nats and would still be there if his contract didnt get in the way.

For the regular season it's hard to do any better than Dusty. I'll give him full credit there. It's in the playoffs where I'd take any bench coach over him. He manages playoff games like a getaway day in June making sure everyone stays fresh, while managers like Bochy throw caution to the wind and ride their best players.
