The Houston Astros have chosen Dusty Baker as their next manager, USA Today’s Bob Nightengale is reporting…
Baker, 70, the three-time National League Manager of the Year who guided four teams to nine postseason berths, seven division titles and an NL pennant, is Mr. Clean and will sanitize the Astros’ image after the sign-stealing scandal that forced them to fire their GM and manager.
The Astros, caught using illegal electronic equipment to steal signs, resulted in the suspensions and firings of GM Jeff Luhnow and manager A.J. Hinch.
