Was it disrespectful from the Nationals?

Dusty Baker is a beloved figure amongst the San Francisco Giants fan base and his return to the bay as a special advisor for Giants' CEO Larry Baer was well received by the fans and the whole organization as well.


But Baker's exit from the Washington Nationals left him disappointed with the organization and with baseball as well. Last season, the Nationals lost against the Chicago Cubs in the National League Divisional Series, and Baker was sacked right after the result.


The 68-years-old manager and former MLB player spoke with Scott Allen from the Washington Post and he told the reporter that he quite didn't understand the Nats' decision of letting him go, and he also said that he wasn't sure about accepting the Giants offer:

I didn't want to be disappointed again, because I was disappointed in Washington, and when I left there, I was quite disappointed and quite disgruntled with the game, just wondering what I had to do to not get fired.


At the end of the day, Baker agreed with the Giants and returned to the place where he enjoyed a long spell as a manager, from 1993 to 2002 and where he played during the 1984 season.
