We think — my family thinks — he did a great job this season given everything that happened.”
If Dusty still has something in the tank the Nats seem like the type of team he would thrive with. Generally mature in terms of talent and ready for contention, they just need someone to keep the ship pointed in the right direction, the Giants, the Cubs, the Reds, this is Dusty's wheelhouse.
this is a sports truth: You just can’t keep coming close and losing. It crushes the spirit. It breaks bonds. It puts everyone in a grumpy mood... On the surface, it’s absurd that the Reds would boot Dusty Baker essentially for losing a one-game playoff to Pittsburgh... It’s not exactly fair. But it is the way of the world. Dusty Baker says he wants to manage again, and I’m guessing that will happen. See, there’s a clear baseball pattern. A terrible team wants to become respectable. When you are under a rock, the biggest thing you can dream of is seeing the sun. Respectability... [But] Respectability is never really enough for people. Once you get there, you want a championship. You need a championship. You begin to resent respectability, see it as a noose. Someone will hire Dusty Baker to make the team respectable. It could be Seattle any day now. It might even be the Royals should they get off to a terrible start in 2014. And there’s a pretty good chance Dusty Baker WILL make the team respectable. He’s done it before.
And after that? Well, it’s fair to say that “after that” has never been Dusty Baker’s favorite time.
Under Girardi, the Yankees have gone a Major League-best 564-408 (.580) since 2008
I'm almost hoping Ausmus gets the Chicago job just to see bbc become a Cubs fan.
As for Baker, why not go to Seattle and see if your mojo works in the AL?
not enough sunlight
No one on the Nats' starting position players has a OBP under .300 so who would Dusty bat second?
What was the knock on Girardi's performance in Miami? It seems like a speck in the rear-view mirror, and I forget what it was, now.
