  1. Surprised he didn’t just ask Volquez to throw a complete game

  2. This just made me spit out my coffee, cartoon-style.

  3. This was an all-time great comment. I think that it should maybe be enshrined somewhere in Cooperstown, as it was truly Hall of Fame worthy.

  4. Since when has Homer Bailey been a legitimate starting pitcher?

  5. And, by the way, there’s a reason that Baker trotted out two legitimate SPs in his first game–he wasn’t being a total ass. Both Cueto and Volquez are pitching for DR in the WBC and so will miss a good deal of spring training.

  6. The funniest thing about this comment is that for a split second, my brain went, “Yeah, that would’ve been a very Dusty Baker thing to do.” Then I realized that it’s spring training. And oh did I laughify.

    On a related note, the Reds are due for a great offensive year, having replaced Adam Dunn (who clogs up the bases) with Willy Taveras.

  8. When compared to minor leaguers, for a while now

  9. So clearly the logical thing to do is to push their pitch counts up even higher.

  10. You do want to stretch them out a little bit before they take on an SP role, it might be even worse for them to just thrust themselves into a situation where they’re expected to pitch 7 innings at full speed.

  11. I remember last year he had Volquez throw 126 pitches in a 9-0 game, it really makes me sick.

    “Dominicans have rubber arms”- Dusty Baker after this game.

    Dusty is one ignorant racist……
