WASHINGTON, Oct. 2 (Xinhua) -- Dusty Baker will not be back as manager of the Chicago Cubs next season, the team said on Monday after finishing the campaign with the worst record in the National League.
"I guess all things must come to an end, and all things come topass," Baker told MLB.com. "It's emotional as you're doing it -- you see four years come to pass before your face."
After 10 seasons in San Francisco guiding the Giants to the 2002 World Series, Baker moved to Chicago where he was expected to work his magic with the Cubs who have not won a championship since 1908.
But after reaching the NL championship series in 2003, the Cubs never returned to the post-season and sunk to new lows this year with a record of 66-96, their worst since 2000.
A three-times National League manager of the year, Baker compiled a record of 322-326 in four seasons with the Cubs. Enditem
