Is Dusty Baker a Hall of Fame manager?


I say no. Baker, who was fired this week by the Cincinnati Reds, has a mixed record. He finished his Reds career with a 509-463 records, making the playoffs three times but never getting them to the World Series. His overall managerial record is 1,671–1,504 with three teams (Giants, Cubs and Reds). He's won a division with all of them and got the Giants to the Series. But never won the Series (he did as a player with the Dodgers). I believe the main reason for that is his poor handling of starting pitchers. Joe Torre and Cito Gaston should go ahead of Baker.
