Re: Reds to offer Baker a contract
I don't hate Dusty. I think he's a good man that brought chemistry to a clubhouse full of young guys.
But his bullheadedness regarding the lineup and his usual bit of watching the wheels fall off when everyone is screaming to do something has driven me crazy for years.
There are plusses and minuses to being a player's manager. Sure, they like you and they play for you. But it makes it hard to do certain manuevers that might upset players during a game.
At this point, I'd rather have a strategical guy than a team Dad as manager.
