The Cubs have decided not to renew Dusty Baker's contract following a rock 'em, sock 'em 66-96 season. Shockeroo, I know.
Even though Baker managed the Barry Bonds Traveling Steroid Show a lot longer than the Cubs, I'll definitely remember him as he guy who helped create an exciting playoff team, then destroyed the arms of its talented young pitchers. He was the skipper of the USS Wrigley that ran aground.
Leave it to me to compare a guy who just lost his job to the drunk captain of the Exxon Valdez. I know how to kick a guy when he's down. It's a signature move I like to call the Haynesworth.
