Dusty Baker signs a 2-year extension
The biggest question of the Reds offseason has already been answered. Manager Dusty Baker has agreed to a two-year contract extension.
This move will be scrutinized beyond belief. Baker’s lineups and personnel decisions are the fuel to a daily inferno on Facebook and Twitter. I fully support extending Baker’s contract. At the big league level, managing personalities and egos over a 7-8 month span is probably the most important part of the job. The players love Dusty Baker, and that’s good enough for me.
Besides, I have already committed to coach the 8u Columbus Cobras for the 2013 season.
