Dusty Baker Will Not Return as Washington Nationals Manager

Nationals announce Dusty Baker will not return Dusty Baker will not return as manager of Washington Nationals
Lucia Summers | 20 October, 2017, 20:57

Baker spent two seasons in Washington and led the Nationals to back-to-back National League East titles but could not get hIs team past the NL Division Series.

Instead, the Nationals will begin their second managerial search in three offseasons, their target unclear.

"I've given some thought to some things, but we were told that we were waiting until after the season to make a determination", he said at the time.

The Los Angeles Dodgers became the first team to advance to the World Series by eliminating the Chicago Cubs last night, while the New York Yankees can advance if they beat the Houston Astros in Game 6 tonight.

The contracts for the members of Baker's coaching staff also are finished.

In a letter to fans, the ownership called the move "an incredibly hard decision for us" and called Baker "one of the true gentleman in our sport".

"Dusty Baker led the team to the first back-to-back division titles in our history and represented our club with class on and off the field".

General Electric shares tank as third quarter is a big earnings miss
Goldman Sachs Group, Inc. (NYSE:TNET) by 16,000 shares to 168,000 shares, valued at $5.50M in 2017Q2, according to the filing. With 70,200 avg volume, 0 days are for TAPINATOR INCORPORATED (OTCMKTS:TAPM)'s short sellers to cover TAPM's short positions.

Despite having what some already consider may be one of the best players of all-time in Bryce Harper, the main reason why Baker was let go was because of his team's poor performance and resolve in the postseason.

Baker said he was let down by the timeline of the team's decision.

To all of you who came to see us at Nationals Park this year, and to the millions more who experienced our games on television, radio, or your mobile devices, we thank you from the bottom of our hearts.

"I think Dusty's great".

"Not my job", shortstop Trea Turner said when asked about Baker's 2018 status. "There's a good chance I'll be back".

It's possible the tenor of Baker's tenure shifted during the NLDS, when the club announced that the dominant Stephen Strasburg would not start Game 4 against the Cubs, despite a rainout enabling Strasburg to pitch on regular rest.

General manager Mike Rizzo was scheduled to address the media in an afternoon conference call.
