    Jesus . . . hasn't Dusty taken enough money under false pretenses?

    I despise you all.

    And BYH, if you think you guys have done more searches for Brook in the past few days than I do on a regular basis, you are sorely mistaken. :p

    True, but none of us are violating a restraining order by doing one.

    Come on, really. You think that Sandy Alderson, the architect of the "new wave" of baseball theory (I refuse to call it Moneyball) would hire Dusty Baker? You'd have to really suspend belief to go with that.

    True. I see Baseball Tonight in Baker's immediate future and that'll be another reason not to watch.

    Traditionally, ex-pitchers do not make good managers. Can Black change that?
