Baker Is New Red's Manager
ESPN.com reports that the Cincinatti Reds have signed ex-Baseball Tonight analyst Dusty Baker to a 3-year contract to manage the club through '10. Baker's last stint with the Cubs ended pretty badly, but he still managed to get them into the postseason multiple times. He does have too much respect for veterans, so i'm sure Josh Hamilton and Edwin Encarnacion might have trouble getting playing time. Great news for Adam Dunn though, as it looks like his option will get excersized.
