Dusty Baker Notes

October 8, 2017

Among more important things, such as squaring their division series vs the Chicago Cubs, whom I have shortchanged, as they are classy, very good, and defending champions, yesterday’s Wash (6-3) win in #2 of its “quarter,” enhanced a pretty good note regarding their manager, Dusty Baker.

In 19 post season series, (8 as an L.A. player, 5 as the San Francisco Giants manager and 2 each as the manager of the Cubs, Reds and now the Nationals) only twice has a Baker team lost the first two games of the series and said series.

Those were in 1997 and 2010 “div” series vs the respective title winning, Florida Marlins and Philadelphia Phillies, the latter team , losing to the eventual title winning S.F. Giants in the NLCS.

Baker’s teams, the ’97 Giants and ”10 Reds lost both the first two games and the series. Each time they were swept out in 3 games.
