Could it be Baker?
I've been chasing the managerial thing again today. The one thing I've been able to learn definitively is the club has at least talked to Dusty Baker.
Baker makes sense in a lot of ways: He's has a lot big league experience. He was the manager of the year in NL three times. He's won -- 1,142-1,041 career record, 88 wins or more eight times in 14 years.
Baker's agent hasn't called me back. I've got a message into Baker himself in a convoluted way. I'll update if I can get more.
