Baker Getting Hate Mail/Barrack Obama References

Dusty Baker [1]Regardless 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 that’s why he said what he said. “The last couple weeks, I’ve 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, that’s really discouraging.
