    Sure.

    Hey Dusty, what is your favorite brand of toothpick?

    They have the record despite him. He was literally forced on the team

    You are ****ing clueless. They don't get to the ALCS in 2020 or the WS in 2021 without Dusty's style in the playoffs. 2022...Dusty again proves he is a good manager.

    Not at all. I'd love to give any of them a shot with this roster.

    I protest. He has a WS caliber team playing like a playoff LOSER.

    And he never has won a WS. You also sound angry. He's garbage. Deal with it

    Garner was a great manager.

    He can't throw. I really don't care if it's physical or mental. I stopped trusting team doctors after JR.

    Swing for the fences or 'move the line' is a team thing.

    He is only garbage if you think the only way a manager effects the team is an analytical criticism of the lineup each day. Even though I'm not a Dusty fan I find the forums critique hilariously narrow.

    Getting guys to play hard, to have a clubhouse that is famously fun and supportive, to be able to ignore the boos and the media bias and the overwhelming desire to see them fail...these things matter so much more than the lineup card. Evidence of which is that we have been one of the best teams in baseball since he was hired. It's not nothing that's for sure.

    Generally I think the people that complain daily about him either don't really understand baseball or are just the internet types that will complain about everything.

    That said I will be happy when he retires and someone with a more modern take that aligns with the front office is in charge.

    For three seasons running they've amassed massive wins in despite him? You can't fake it that long dude, especially with the amount of talent that departs the team every offseason.

    I feel like the Astros have been so good for so long people have to invent something to whine about.

    Never won a World Series (As a Manager - Like Baker, Won as a player). Is that how it goes?

    Why don't you put more pressure on Click to put some real bats around a generational pitcher like Verlander?

    My response…you’ve managed literally multiple top 10-20 players of all time. You’ve been the WS betting favorite multiple times. How do you have zero rings?
