Former Nats manager Dusty Baker became the Astros new manager last month in the wake of the sign-stealing scandal.
Now he may be wondering why he took the job.
Baker has gone from hoping aloud that everyone would just move on from his team’s cheating scandal to acknowledging that the topic will linger.
When spring training opened, Baker talked about first-day apologies closing the discussion. Now he says that just because you want to move on does not mean everyone will.
At least one minor character in all the drama is ready to set this aside: Nationals catcher Kurt Suzuki sought to end his back-and-forth with the Astros by joking that he is too old to be in the middle of this stuff.
