That being said, whether Dusty is back or not I don't care, I'll still back the Reds. Be careful what you wish for though about Dusty not being back - U.K. basketball fans wanted Tubby Smith gone and got Billy Gillespie, Michigan football fans wanted Lloyd Carr gone and got Rich Rodriguez.
If these Reds, under Baker, were winning playoff series' but just couldn't get over the hump in the WS, I would say let's keep things in tact and give it another go.
Not only have these Reds not won a single playoff series, they've looked pretty miserable in the attempts.
