Re: AP says Baker gone as mngr.
Had to be done. The Reds could have been 30 games over .500 next year and there would have been this dark cloud hanging over the team as the playoffs approached. They could win the division by 10 games and there would still be the lingering feeling that Dusty's teams would choke in the playoffs. His record in playoff elimination games is embarrassing. He's 1-11 in his last 12 games. Also, the Reds completely underachieved during the regular season. That wasn't all his fault, but some of it was.
This was a move that had to be made. Kudos, B-Cast. Now find us a good manager!
