38:43: In Dusty We Can't Stand.

* Why Dusty Baker Pushed Prior, Wood So Hard, According To Dusty Baker.

* FYI, Dusty's bullpen that year was Joe "Beer Can" Borowski (33 of the team's 36 saves, 2.0 WAR; Hector Rondon had 30 saves last year, 2.2 WAR), Kyle Farnsworth, Mike Remlinger, Antonio Alfonseca and Mark Guthrie.

* Dusty cannot be trustied.

* "At the end of the day, boys, don't tell me how rough the water is, you bring in the ship."

* Don't forget: Dusty Baker is the reason why Steve Stone is now in the White Sox booth and not the Cubs booth where he belongs. (And Crane Kenney is probably the reason why Bob Brenly is in the Diamondbacks booth and not the Cubs booth, where he belongs.)

* Dusty Baker is also a racist clown.
