dusty baker???

Surely Stan Kasten and the Nationals owners aren't serious about possibly hiring Dusty Baker to replace Frank Robinson as manager? They don't need him as a token minority candidate, because they are apparently serious about Braves (Kasten's old team) hitting coach Terry Pendleton. Pendleton looks like a decent choice (he has a good rep as a coach in Atlanta), and Lou Piniella (if he can handle being away from his native Florida) and Joe Girardi (I bet the Lehrners won't yell at the umpires!) are also reasonable candidates.

But Nats, please please please please please don't hire Dusty Baker. Be kind to your young pitchers.
