It's not that he's a bad hire. It's that he's not a really good one. Between him and Black, it doesn't matter. But the Nationals needed an update. Yes communication is important. Clubhouse atmosphere is important.

But you know what's also really important? The numbers. The splits. The metrics. And Baker is probably about 40 years out of date. I mean this is the guy who said that he doesn't want guys getting on base and clogging the basepaths!!

Maybe the team does good. Maybe they make the playoffs. But it'll be more of what we've seen in the past.
