One of the highest payrolls in the league and after nine years running the show his teams have never made it past the NLDS. Ironic AF, him referencing playoff failure as the reason for letting Baker go.

The real intriguing thing for the on-going manager search is how much control, if any, will Rizzo be given in the new hire. So far he has signed four managers who have lasted an average of two years each, who in their right mind would give this guy a fifth chance? Since the President of Baseball Operations was overruled on the decision on whether to extend Baker, I'd bet the house that the answer isn't the Lerners.
Rizzo didn't want Baker in the first place. He wanted Bud Black, but ownership freaked him over. Again.
