It may be time to revisit the question as to the identity of the Cub manager in 2007. Right now, its clearly still the Dusty Baker show. It was he, and not Hendry, who has announced that the Cubs are not going to be calling any players up from Iowa after the first. It appears to be he, and not Hendry, that is continuing to direct the roster on the team and the continued use of the types of players valued highly by Dusty (fast, quick, weak hitting types).
But, the virtual certainty that Dusty will be back is now down to less than 90%.
But if Dusty goes, when does he go?
