I think if Walt wants to sabotage the negotiations between the REDS and Dusty, he holds someone back from the playoff roster that Baker wants, as long as it's someone that Walt feels shouldn't be on the roster.
Can you elaborate/add credibility on your belief that Walt doesn't want Dusty back?
I was under the impression they have a great working relationship with mutual respect.
