Hey, man, booooo!

Dusty Baker returned. And got booed. Just like the ex-Cubs manager said the fans at Wrigley would do before the game. But that didn’t keep the new Cincinnati manager from smiling and looking happier than he has in years, at least around here.

“Life is good,” he said behind the batting cage about an hour before the game. “My life is real good.”

The booing from Cubs fans was loud and immediate as Baker took the lineup card to home plate before the game, met there by Cubs coach Matt Sinatro with the Cubs lineup.

But it’s exactly what he expected, Baker said during a media conference this afternoon. “I been booed before,” he said. “I been booed in more towns than this one.”
