Fire them both
Five reasons to fire Dusty Baker
1. Matt Murton batting sixth, seventh, or eighth when he's one of the only productive hitters on the team.
2. Using Neifi Perez at the top of the order, regardless of his endless fascination with hacking at any pitch he sees.
3. An unexplainable fascination with speed, resulting in players like Jose Macias and Perez getting far more playing time than they deserve.
4. His decision to rely on "proven veterans" who produce at a low, but predictable level, rather than unproven, but promising, players indicates a manager afraid to lose, rather than one who believes he can win.
5. Bunting with a man on second and Derrek Lee coming up next, which only leads to Lee being intentionally walked.
Five reasons to fire Jim Hendry
1. Overaggressive promotion of Corey Patterson, who came to the majors without strike zone judgement, has destroyed his career.
2. Hendry has never put together anything resembling a decent bullpen; this year's (reasonable) decision to dump Mike Remlinger without coming up with another lefthanded reliever meant that Will Ohman was overused, exposing his weaknesses.
3. Hendry has shown a glaring lack of regard for on-base skills.
4. Hendry has no organizational philosophy, resulting in a consistent inability to identify good prospects, sign them, and develop them.
5. Hendry signed Dusty Baker to guide a veteran team, then socked him with a bunch of reclamation projects (Dempster, Hairston, Ohman, Williamson).
