John "Dusty" Baker

has come out and said he wants to manage the Nationals. Please god no. He's just about as wrong a manager for the Nationals as one could imagine. The problem is that he is a future Hall of Fame Manager that has won 300 games with three different teams and has taken all of those teams to the playoffs in many of his seasons. In other words, his numbers may look appealing... but behind those numbers.....

Personally, I take the Ripken gamble. The last time a Washington Team took a Hall of Fame player with no managerial experience it was a great success. Ted Williams took over a 96 loss team and saw their record improve by 20 games in his first season. The following year the owner forced some of the worst trades in the history of baseball with the net result that Williams went to war with no weapons. But Williams was the right answer at the time. And Ripken's got even a better sense of the game.

But I would take almost anyone over baker...
