Paving the Way
The LA Times has this report which is the first media play in what is likely the start of Dusty Baker's exit from Chicago.
According to a Cubs' source:
"Dusty wants desperately to manage the Dodgers … and [supporters] would love to get a buzz going about Dusty in case the Dodgers were thinking of letting Tracy go at the end of the season.
"He would love the Dodgers to come calling and then hope the Cubs would let him go."
While it looks like Dusty will survive the weekend, it's just about certain he won't be back next year.
As the LA Times is a Trib owned paper, and the Trib owes Dusty $4 million in 2006, look for this story to get a lot of play tomorrow and on the radio. Well, at least on WGN.
