The post you knew was coming sooner rather than later.
Yes, it's time to let Dusty Baker loose and eat the rest of his 2006 contract.
Only the Royals have scored fewer runs in MLB. Sure Derrek Lee is out. But what adjustments has Baker made? The Cubs still remain undisciplined at the plate and on the bases. Who is to blame for that? They refuse to draw walks and run the bases as if they've been drugged. There's no way they should have so many players getting picked off and doubled off. It's ridiculous.
The Cubs have now been shutout in 4 of their last 6 games. They have scored 2 runs in their last 6 games. The game before that they got shelled by Milwaukee 16-2.
There are rumors surfacing that the Cubs are interested in Kevin Millar or Jeff Conine. Puh-leeze.
Bring down Brenly. Call Unca Lou. Baker has proven to be a terrible manager. Buh-bye.
