Reds fire Dusty Baker

Dusty Baker had one year left on his two-year contract, but the Reds have apparently seen enough. The team fired Baker a mere three days after their loss to the Pirates in the wild-card playoff. Baker took the team to the playoffs in three of the last four years, but was unable to move them beyond the first round. Baker's old-school style occasionally resulted in some questionable decisions, but did he deserve to get the boot?
