Baker Getting Hate Mail/Barrack Obama References

Dusty BakerRegardless of what you think of Dusty Baker as a baseball manager and whether or not you agree with the Reds decision to fire him today, this report from Jon Heyman of CBSSports.com is sad/depressing:

Baker quite likely started to sense that maybe his time was up in Cincinnati. Maybe thats why he said what he said. The last couple weeks, Ive been getting a rash of hate mail, racial mail, he said. Maybe it is time to go.

However, setting aside all the baseball stuff and focusing more on the human being stuff man, thats really discouraging.
