Dusty Baker was fired by the Cincinnati Reds after losing to the Pirates in the NL Wild Card game last October.
The man who steered the Giants from 1993-2002 still does not have an MLB team to manage this year, and he spoke recently with MLB.com, offering the following explanation of how he's spending his extra free time:
"Hey, life goes on. I’m spending time with my son. It’s been nice watching him play basketball and now he’s getting ready for baseball. I’ve had eight months worth of honey-dos to make up. I’m trying not to think about baseball. It still hurts some. You find other avenues for the time. It’s still the offseason for me. I have no problems staying busy. If I have nothing, I make up something to do. My wife says I have eight part-time jobs. But none of them are paying, yet."
