Dusty Baker and Barry Bonds have a longtime connection, but don't expect to see him working for Baker with the Nationals.
When the Nationals were looking for a manager two years ago, Dusty Baker threw his hat into the ring, but says now he wasn't interested in the job. Why?
The Nationals added another high-profile coach to Dusty Baker's staff Thursday morning, bringing Davey Lopes back to serve in the first base coaching position he held in D.C. a decade ago.
Dusty Baker will formally be introduced as the sixth manager in Nationals history at 11 a.m., donning a curly W cap and home jersey for the first time during a news conference at Nationals Park.
Dusty Baker presumably didn't know he would be the Nationals' next manager last weekend. He was hired somewhat suddenly Tuesday after negotiations with original choice Bud Black fell through.
