That's why I'm trying to stay neutral

i like the dusty baker signing, i think he's a quality manager, and he'll do a fine job.

I wanted a guy who has won with less, not a guy who has lost with more.

We gotta look at it this way, stay positive and look at the overall picture. We did go out and get a big name guy who has won in the past.

Just curious, on what basis are you making the claim "but we will be a lot better"?

On the basis that for some time we have had managers who could not manage a game...Baker has PROVEN he can manage a game.

More curiousity-because he has an overall winning record or because you like his in-game moves? If the latter, what in particular impresses you? Frankly, I've never seen it but I'm biased because I despised him as a player and despised him as a manager.

I was not impressed with the choice but I am not a baseball GM. I am taking a wait and see approach to Baker. I was glad to see the organization go outside to bring someone in.
