Happy Reds birthday, Dusty Baker!

Baker

June 15, 1949

Dusty Baker certainly has a reputation as a fine manager, but he can never seem to take his team all the way. Only once in over twenty seasons has Baker’s team won the pennant (2002 with the Giants). Baker skippered the Reds for six seasons, winning 509 games and losing 463 in that time, three times going to the postseason (where they won two of seven games). Baker has been named the NL Manager of the Year three times, and four other times has finished in the top three for the award.
