    I just think Dusty is a better manager. Scary handler of pitchers that he may be, he still has a solid track record of success and has always seemed to be pretty good at getting the most out of his roster. Garner, OTOH, is a horrible manager IMO.

    Oh, sure, unless he has some kind of out. I'd think they would demand compensation.

    ESPN has just reported Dusty Baker has accepted the Reds offer to be their new manager. Pray.

    Well, he's a Red now so there's nothing left to do but get behind him and support him.

    Dusty Baker has agreed to a three-year deal to manage the Cincinnati Reds, beginning with the upcoming season, ESPN has learned.

    Baker, a former Cubs and Giants manager and current ESPN analyst, will continue to work with ESPN through this season's League Championship Series and World Series.

    Baker is expected to be introduced at a news conference in Cincinnati on Monday.

    The 58-year-old Baker was fired by the Cubs after they finished last in 2006. Lou Piniella replaced him and led the Cubs to the division title this season. Chicago was swept in its first-round playoff series against Arizona.

    Baker managed the Giants for 10 years, leading them to the World Series in 2002. He left San Francisco after a falling out with ownership and went to the Cubs, leading them to the NL championship series in his first season.

    Chicago had another winning record in 2004, its first back-to-back winning seasons in more than three decades. But the team unraveled in his last two years, and the Cubs didn't renew his contract after an NL-worst record of 66-96 in 2006.

    He has had some success. Maybe he learned from his mistakes with Prior and Wood.

    Three year deal for Baker.

    Very interesting.

    Have to believe lots of personnel, coaching and perhaps front office (Jocketty?) changes are coming.
