Don Baylor

In his wonderful new Historical Baseball Abstract, Bill James points out exactly why I dislike Don Baylor so much:
"But personally, I find him almost intolerable, because, to me, he seems to be engaged in a perpetual charade designed to project the image of great strength. As a manager, he seems to be using this image of great strength, great conviction in the rectitude of his actions, as a substitute for having any reason for what he is doing."
