2010 Reds (’72 Style): Dusty Baker

I always hated pulling manager cards as a kid, unless the manager was a Hall of Fame player or Pete Rose (who is a Hall of Famer if ever there was one).

Even today, I hate manager cards. Especially if I don’t like the manager. And I don’t like Dusty Baker. Yeah, he took the Giants and Cubs to the playoffs, and the Reds are playing well now under him, but I’m not convinced he is the reason. I think he is just a lucky dude who happens to be in the right place at the right time. With any luck, he’ll head out to LA next year and the Reds can get someone who won’t destroy the young pitchers in his place.
