I recall many times when what Baker says is contradicted by someone else. He can't seem to help himself from telling all of these white lies. Here is an excerpt from an article in this morning's Trib by Paul Sullivan. When I read it I immediately knew Baker was not being truthful and my suspicions were confirmed by "Walk".
Excerpt from article...
I've been talking to him all winter," manager Dusty Baker said. "He knows we've got some competition for that job. Like I said earlier, he's probably the front-runner for that position. It's just a matter of how healthy he is, because at the end [of last season] he had a few health issues. But we've got room for everybody."
Walker insisted he didn't speak to Baker this winter.
"He called, but we kept missing each other," he said.
