I saw this one coming months ago. With Dusty Baker getting heat with the Cubs and the Marlins’ idiot ownership jousting with Joe Girardi, it was a no-brainer that he might end up back in Chicago. He interviewed with the Cubs yesterday and has the inside track.
Girardi is loyal to Joe Torre, so I don’t see an interview there if the Yankees foolishly fire the manager who has taken them to the playoffs every year since 1996, and has won four World Series.
Meanwhile, the Mets are endorsing coaches Manny Acta and Jerry Manuel. The Nationals reportedly have interest in Acta. With a large Hispanic population in South Florida, Acta is expected to get attention from the Marlins, too.
