Dusty Baker blamed for pitcher’s death in boating accident

Cincinnati Reds manager Dusty Baker is getting most of the blame today in light of the death of Reds starter Randy Mason, who tragically passed away over the weekend in a boating accident. "I'm just saying," said Reds fan Linda James. "Look at his track record with pitchers – Kerry Wood, Mark Prior. Now this. The one common factor is Dusty." Police say Mason, who had a 1.6 blood alcohol level, lost control of his boat and slammed into a bridge support on the Ohio River. That's all the evidence one caller into a Cincinnati sports radio show needed: "I bet his hands slipped off the wheel because his elbow was so tired. Dusty should be charged for murder."
