Dusty roads: Baker out as Reds manager
The Reds have a lot of talent, but were unable to make it past the Pirates in a one-game Wild Card playoff.
Baker managed the Reds for 6 seasons, making the playoffs three times. He had a total record of 509-463 for a .524 winning percentage. The Reds won the NL Central in 2010 and 2012, and then won the 2nd Wild Card spot this year.
Baker has a career record of 1671-1504 as a manger, for a .520 winning percentage in 20 years, but he has only made it to one World Series. In 2002, his Giants lost in 7 games to the Anaheim Angels.
With jobs opening up in Chicago with the Cubs and now in Cincinnati, there are already a few intriguing jobs available. Combine that with the fact that Joe Girardi's contract expires with the Yankees at the end of the month, and there could be one more big job opened up.
Who do you think the Reds should target as their next manager?
