Re: AP says Baker gone as mngr.
Dumb move. People are critical of him, but people are always critical of managers until the team wins it all, then they're indifferent, always giving credit to the just the players.
Dusty was a good manager. A really good manager. Next year, someone else will be there, and the Reds will go deep into the playoffs and everyone will say, see, Dusty was bad. But they will overlook how injured the Reds were this year and will overlook a full year with people like Hamilton and whoever the Reds pick up.
I feel they took a step back in manager position. Hopefully the new guy will be better. But I'd be really surprised if he is.
