I honestly wasn't too enthused when we signed him either but after listening to him talk more, I think I like him. He's just a no-bullshit kind of guy and obviously very old-school. Which is exactly what the Astros need right now I think. Someone to tell them just shut up and play baseball. Don't worry about anything else, just play.

We only signed him for a year though. Which has me thinking too after hearing Crane's "apology". Crane is clearly pissed about Manfred and the Astros being singled out. I wouldn't be surprised if:

1. We let Baker do his 1 year, thank him, and send him on his way
2. We re-sign Hinch after his 1 year suspension
3. We watch all of MLB meltdown in rage
