Maybe I was right about this. The good ole Boston Globe is rumoring what I had suggested a few weeks ago.

Dusty’s trail
There is already speculation in Chicago that Grady Little, a special assistant to Cubs general manager Jim Hendry, is in line for the managing job if the team decides to make a move with the embattled Dusty Baker, who has watched his bullpen implode on a daily basis. The coup de grace came 10 days ago when LaTroy Hawkins gave up the tying and winning runs when he tried to double up Jose Offerman on a liner back to the box, and his throw struck Offerman in the helmet and bounced into the stands. Baker, who has a year left on his deal and was hailed as a savior when he left the Giants in 2003, received a vote of confidence from team president Andy MacPhail last week. ”Like everybody else, I am not wowed by the won-loss record,” MacPhail told the Chicago Tribune. ”But the blame game is something that seems to be more prevalent today in our sports media than it was 10 or 15 years ago. What we are really focused on is trying to fix the problem, not assigning blame. You know, assigning blame is kind of a waste of energy.”
