Fire Dusty Baker!

In a stunning twist, the Nationals manager job isn't completely settled, and word is, the club has reached out to Dusty Baker, and will offer him the job.

While it has been widely reported that Black was the guy, Baker is now very likely to be the one to succeed Matt Williams as Nats manager.

Nats people were said to be leaning toward Baker even over the weekend, though multiple reports suggested the job was already Black's. Baker is seen as someone who can handle superstars, so he'd fit with the Nats, who have arguably baseball's best player in Bryce Harper. Baker previously managed Barry Bonds and Sammy Sosa with much success.

The Nats were said to have been in talks with Black, but word is, nothing had ever been settled, despite the reports. The team had keen interest in Baker from the start.

Not a huge fan of this move, but I guess we'll see what happens. Maybe it is the right move for this team.
