I picked this up from one of the posters on the Cub Reporter.
By Brennan: All the world can be reduced to Simpsons references, and Dusty's pinch-hitting choices are no exception:
Darryl Strawberry: You're pinch-hitting for me?
C. Montgomery Burns: Yes, you see you're a left-hander and so is the pitcher. If I send up a right-handed batter it's called 'playing the percentages.' It's what smart managers do to win ballgames.
Strawberry: But I hit nine home runs today.
Burns: You should be very proud of yourself. Sit down.
I think we can apply that to Dusty Baker's general handling of the team.
