Dusty Baker is out as Cubs manager, which probably means that Joe Girardi is in.

Here's a little more from David Segui, concerning his name being included in Jason Grimsley's affidavit. Segui wants to make sure there's no misunderstanding, that he's only mentioned for using hGH, though that might not be clear in the LA Times story:

"From my personal standpoint, I read the affidavit. I know where my name's involved, regarding that first paragraph about the doctor I get the human growth hormones from. There's where my name comes from. That was the whole point of me coming out with my statement on ESPN, to clarify why my name was involved in the whole thing to begin with. I read the entire affidavit. That's the only time my name's mentioned in it."

I caught up with Segui yesterday, about 40 miles from the Mexican border, as he was returning from a hunting trip. I know there's a joke in there, but be nice.

Segui was kind enough to return my call despite having poor cell reception and better things to do than talk to a sportswriter. He also agreed to be a phone-in guest today on The Anita Marks Show on ESPN Radio 1300 and MASN, sometime after 5 p.m. I left him another message as a reminder. You never know if these things will pan out. I'll be popping into the studio around 5-ish, just in case.

Yesterday, Segui defended Brian Roberts and Jay Gibbons, who are accused in the affidavit, along with Miguel Tejada, of taking anabolic steroids. I asked him more than once if he was positive about Roberts, his former roommate, and Gibbons, whose locker was near his in the Orioles' clubhouse.

"It would surprise me," Segui said. "I've never seen it, I never heard them ever talking about it, and I was a lot closer to them than Jason ever was."

Having those three players named wasn't "shocking," Segui said, "because we knew he was throwing people under the bus. It's just that nobody knew exactly what it was that he was saying. You've got to consider the source."
