Nationals won't bring Dusty Baker back in 2018

The Nationals will not bring back manager Dusty Baker for the 2018 season.

What It Means:

Baker's contract was set to expire after the season, and following back-to-back first-round exits from the playoffs, the Nationals have decided not to bring back the 68-year-old manager. He led the club to consecutive National League East titles while going a combined 192-132.

Across 22 seasons as a manager, Baker is 1863-1636 (.532) across stints with the San Francisco Giants, Chicago Cubs, Cincinnati Reds, and Nationals.
