In five years he's only 24 games over .500 as this team's manager. But he seems to dial it up a notch for contract years. Handed a one-year contract....which I assume he will accept....I don't think he does any better, takes the team any further than this year.
It's way past time for the team to move on, IMO.
Dust Baker won 99 games this year but that's not good enough for a malcontent. We've gone to the playoffs 2 of the last three years, something unheard of for decades in Cincinnati, but that's not good enough.
