INSTA-POLL: Which was the dumber Dusty Baker decision this week?
(a) telling reporters on Saturday that Black and Latino players do better in the summer months, saying, "It's easier for most Latin guys and it's easier for most minority people because most of us come from heat. You don't find too many brothers in New Hampshire and Maine and the Upper Peninsula of Michigan. Right? . . . We were brought over here for the heat, right? Isn't that history? Weren't we brought over because we could take the heat? Your skin color is more conducive to heat than it is to the lighter-skinned people. I don't see brothers running around burnt. That's a fact. I'm not making this up. I'm not seeing some brothers walking around with some white stuff on their ears and noses"; or,

(b) leaving Florida rookie sensation Dontrelle Willis (8-1, 2.13 ERA) off the All-Star squad only because he hasn't actually seen him pitch yet, as though maybe he didn't really exist.
