Longtime MLB manager Dusty Baker is widely respected around the baseball world. He’s also seen as a players’ manager.

So it should not come as too much of a surprise that multiple members of the Washington Nationals were reportedly upset after the team fired him earlier this month.

“Nats players are said by sources to be generally upset, unhappy that Baker got fired, but even more unhappy at the continuing upheaval and uncertainty around the team, and the perception that creates,” Jon Heyman of FanRag Sports reported Thursday.

There’s definitely something behind this angst. Baker averaged 96 wins in his two seasons as the Nationals manager. Though, it’s the postseason lack of success that forced Nationals brass to move on from him.
