Has Dusty Baker ever won the World Series?

The World Series is the annual championship series of Major League Baseball (MLB) in the United States and Canada, contested since 1903 between the champion teams of the American League (AL) and the National League (NL). The winner of the World Series championship is determined through a best-of-seven playoff, and the winning team is awarded the Commissioner’s Trophy.

Unfortunately, the same can’t be said for Dusty Barker as a manager. He has been criticized as a poor postseason manager. In 1998, the Giants finished the season tied for the Wild Card playoff position but unfortunately lost the National League Wild Card tiebreaker game to the Chicago Cubs. He has also been criticized for destroying the amazing careers of Robb Nen, Kerry Wood, Mark Prior, and Edinson Vólquez.
