A shot at Dusty?

| 25 Comments | No TrackBacks

During his first news conference of spring training Wednesday, general manager Jim Hendry seemed to be taking a shot at former Cubs manager Dusty Baker while heaping praise on Lou Piniella.

"A big key to us getting back on track last year was we had a manager who played the people who came up right away, which is very important,’’ Hendry said. ‘‘Lou plugged them right in the first two or three days and got the most out of them. So you don't have to have all these high-profile, superstar prospects. The guys who filled in the cracks last year really helped us win the division as much as the star players."

PHOENIX — Before the Diamondbacks' workout Tuesday at Chase Field, manager Bob Melvin announced his starting lineup for Game 1 of the National League Division Series against the Cubs.
