Will Dusty Survive?

August 16, 2013
By

Dusty Baker has one of the best records as a big league manager. However, his history has been that he brings a team into contention but just can’t take them all the way. I haven’t heard much grumbling yet to change managers. If the Reds finish as low as third this year, you begin to wonder if Dusty has met his Waterloo in Cincinnati. It would be a shame, because for the most part, he has done a great job keeping the Reds among the elite in baseball He did the same in Chicago, and except for the infamous left field fan interference, he would have had the Cubs in the World Series. Last year at Cincinnati he had the 2-0 lead against the Giants and the team totally collapsed at home. The Giants went on to win the World Series. Even though Cincinnati management seems to be less impulsive than some other organizations, you wonder if Dusty can survive if the Reds do not make the World Series. No one seems to care, but the Reds have had a lot of injuries this year. They were picked to win big in the National League, and unless they get very hot the last six weeks, the wolves may start to howl. We will know in the next few weeks. If they win big and make the playoffs, the month of July will be forgotten quickly.
