He saw fit to play Corey Patterson in 133 games last season.
This man put up these numbers over the course of ONE HUNDRED AND THIRTY-THREE GAMES! During the midst of this impressive .238 OBP campaign, Baker allowed Patterson to have 155 plate appearances (32 starts) in the leadoff spot as well. I guess I know why Dusty isn't a fan of those "base-cloggers", he prefers the players that presume not to get on base AT ALL.
I wonder if he encouraged the GM to make a push for Scott Podsednik over the winter.
