Default In Dusty the Nats no longer Trusty

Sounds like Baker is the only one surprised by the decision.

If it wasnít for Dusty, the Nats would have been the one getting creamed by the Dodgers in the NLCS instead of the Cubs.

The guy canít stay out of his own way. Happy trails, Dusty.

So apparently you don't want to be semi-successful in baseball. You either need to win it all as a manager, or completely suck, to keep your job.

Dusty has taken 4 different teams to the playoffs. Just can't get over the hump.

I think Baker is a good manager over 162 games if he has a good team, but he's not a good in-game strategist and those little mistakes are a lot harder to overcome in a short series than over 162 games. If Harper weren't a free agent at the end of next year, maybe the Nats give him another year but next year could be the last hurrah for the Nats.

Dusty Baker = Gene Mauch.

Talented teams, little success and a tendency to blow up good situations.
