Nats announced Dusty won't be back next year.

Their entire pitching staff popped champagne.

So when he got fired in Cincinatti, like 5 different people reported it in our office thinking they were the first. So it's become an office thing to answer anyone bringing up old news with "yea, Dusty Baker was fired, too"


I just yelled it out first and got a big laugh.


Sorry, Dusty.

If Kenny Williams were still the GM, he'd try to sign him as a player

Fired by Bryce Harper


Baker enjoyed an apparently strong rapport with players, who often backed him publicly. In the wake of their 9-8, season-ending loss to the Chicago Cubs in Game 5 of the NLDS, multiple players deferred when asked if they'd endorse Baker's return.

"I think that’s a decision made from up top," Harper said in his final public comments. "I don’t want to comment on that really. Just have to come from up top."

"Not my job," shortstop Trea Turner said when asked about Baker's 2018 status.

When pressed on the matter, Turner said: "I would love to have him back. We won 95 games last year, 97 this year, but that is not my job."



Oh and those mind games some thought they were playing with the Cubs...



It's possible the tenor of Baker's tenure shifted during the NLDS, when the club announced that the dominant Stephen Strasburg would not start Game 4 against the Cubs, despite a rainout enabling Strasburg to pitch on regular rest. Baker announced Strasburg was "under the weather," and confusion ensued over when Strasburg threw a bullpen session that might have precluded him from starting Game 4.

A 12-hour public relations nightmare ensued before Strasburg, feeling better, told Baker and pitching coach Mike Maddux he could pitch Game 4 and proceeded to beat the Cubs, forcing the decisive Game 5.

Dusty is the Larry Himes of managers: Gets you from Point A to Point B but not to Point C. And you don't just end up at B; you get your heart ripped out.

Took every team he managed to the playoffs and won a lot of games. Borderline HoF manager.
