    If you could ask Baker one legitimate question what would it be?

    For me... Why doesn't Chas start more against LH pitching?

    No chance I could only ask one when he does so many stupid things…so I parred it down my top 5:

    1) Do you occasionally bet on baseball, specifically, against your own team? If not, please explain your thought process behind your lineup cards for the games where you hit Niko Goodrum in the 2/3 hole, against a right handed pitcher no less.

    2) Do you use/look at stats at all when deciding who to start/use out of the pen? Bonus points…which stats do you find to be the most important for hitters/ pitchers and can you name and explain ONE of the new age advanced statistical measures?

    3) Are you a Donald Trump fan? Do you believe the bullsh*t that spews out of your mouth (I.e. new trade additions give the team more speed, the comments he made that time he screwed up pinch hitting in the 9th and said lefties hit the guy way better when in fact the opposite was true, etc.), and if not, why do you even answer/comment on questions that you have NO IDEA the answer to similar to the one and only…Donald Trump.

    4) Do you drink and/or use drugs before filling out the lineup card occasionally?

    5) Why TF do you wear a mask and/or gloves one day and then the next day (or in some cases even mid game) not wear them?

    Edit: I just pulled a Dusty with my lineup above and forgot the TRUE #1 question I would like to ask…

    WHEN ARE YOU GOING TO RETIRE YOU LOSER?!

    You wish Trump was MGR instead of Musty.

    LOL -- outstanding lobster trap question... although you can't lead with this. First soften him up with flattery and easy stuff to get him loose and then slip in this torpedo. Best case scenario is he answers it in a way that gets him a long term suspension!

    Is Click the most insufferable GM you've had the unfortunate pleasure of dealing with?

    After this thread gets to a few pages I plan to submit this thread to the Guinness Book of World Records. I'm sure the amount of b****ing and complaining from a fan base about a manager of a team with this big of a lead in the division will be some kind of record.

    If I thought I would get an honest answer, I'd ask: how often do you and Click see eye-to-eye on roster makeup and lineup construction?

    If not, I'd ask for his favorite story from his career.

    Why aren't you at home, sitting on the porch and drinking a beer?

    Yeah...I was hoping the word legitimate would work, but I've been here 20+ years so I should have known better.

    I'm pretty sure that would be more of a question for James Click. I mean, maybe Dusty knows the answer, but if you are blaming Dusty for Jake being on the roster, I'm not sure he has final say on that matter.

    Dusty's response:
    "31 games over .500 in the first week of August. 11.5 game lead in the Division. 1.5 games behind the Supposed All-Time great Yankees team for best record in the AL. All this without McCullers and Brantley (for 2 months)...while losing Correa in the offseason. I've won over 2000 games in this league, made it to 2 WS, lead all 5 franchises that I've managed to the playoffs, and lead this team to 2 straight ALCS and 1 WS, both years with starting pitching put together with chewing gum. A nitwit like you doesn't get to ask me DUMBASS questions."
