Sisko did definitely enjoy his post on DS9 but unlike Kirk or Picard he also had a life beyond work. Compared to them he is more of an everyman who is happy when a day's work is done, when he can spend some time with his Jake or Yates or watch Baseball. Sure, he is not the prototypical everyman like O'Brien but he is definitely not the usual larger-than-life Starfleet captain either.
