  • Dusty Baker learns Nationals can't be trusted

    ANALYSIS/OPINION It turns out that Jim Riggleman was right. The former Washington Nationals manager may have clumsily handled the moment when he threatened to quit — and then carried out the threat in the middle of the 2011 season unless his contract option for the next season was picked up by the Lerner family, the Nationals owners.

Don't mind the seat being warm before you even sit down. The Nationals' decision Friday not to bring Dusty Baker back as manager simultaneously makes some sense and is absolutely jarring.

Dusty's out despite winning 95 and 97 games in his two seasons
