Dusty Baker Is Completely Insane

Smush HigginsAnalyst IJune 2, 2008

The Reds are stuck with Baker for probably two more years, and yet they are still  okay with it. Well, I'm not. Here's why:

1. When there are runners in scoring position and the pitcher who is pitching a beauty of a game is scheduled to come up to bat, he brings up crappy hitters to pinch hit, such as Paul Bako, Javier Valentin, and Norris Hopper. They always make outs.

2. He's like Al Davis. He'll sign speedy free agents that are "His boy" and they always turn out to be terrible, such as Jerry Hairston Jr. and Corey DUSTYson Pattersonwho he managed in Chicago.

3. He gives those horrific free agents way too much money. Patterson: $3 million. Why give that guy three million dollars? Gosh.

Now do you agree that he's insane?
