Dusty's Whine is Well-Aged, though the Skin is Thin

In the Tribune today, poor Dusty Baker whines about the Cubs spending money, the end of his tenure here, and, most pathetically, being afraid to go back to Wrigley. Johhny B. also talks about becoming a wine maker.

"At this point I'm not ready to [call a game at Wrigley]. I don't need any more abuse, you know what I mean? I was booed and jeered enough. You use every experience to your advantage to learn. Some you'd just as soon forget; some you don't."

Hey Dusty, I have heard you on ESPN, and you are brutal, dude. Because of blackouts, I will likely have to watch the game Monday on the U! instead of ESPN. A pity.

He is also very relatable, as he talks about not wanting to wear the same pair of shoes two days in a row, which means he has to pay for the extra weight in his luggage on a (gasp) commercial flight.

I would say I cannot wait until Dusty is a manager again, but I think I will have to. I cannot imagine him getting a job any time soon. Who would want him? Unless Joe Morgan is buying a team.

P.S. Found a really good casual but upscale restaurant in the neighborhood last night.
