Dusty Baker hasn't had a lot of success in the postseason.
In his nearly 50 years in baseball as a player or coach, Baker has won one World Series in 1981 when he was on the Los Angeles Dodgers.
He even struggled in that Series, hitting .167 in the Fall Classic.

Obviously emotions are running high this Monday night, and the Nationals manager didn't mince words when asked about Anthony Rizzo, whose eighth-inning RBI single produced the go-ahead run for the Cubs in Game 3 of the NLDS.
Baker wasn't that impressed.

Baker was still coming down after the heartbreaking loss, but these comments are still ridiculous.
Rizzo has hit .333 with one home run and five RBI in the NLDS, and has easily been the best offensive player in a series where offense has been hard to come by. Chill, Dusty. Just pitch around him.
