Players call "players only" meeting before today's game
The Reds had a players-only meeting before Sunday's game.
"It's OK with me as long as they ask permission, which they did," Dusty Baker said.
Baker met with the team Friday.
"I think we overmeet as a society,' he said. "You can talk, but you've got to follow through."
Baker wouldn't say who called the meeting, saying only it was more than one player. David Weathers was one.
"We've got so many young guys," Baker said. "They've got to hear it from a player sometimes."
