UPDATE: We spoke too soon.  Dusty Baker will miss another game because of an irregular heartbeat. Chris Speier will continue to fill in for Baker.

10:30 AM: Good news: Ken Rosenthal reports that Dusty Baker, who has spent the last two days in the hospital due to an irregular heartbeat, is expected to manage the Reds tonight.

The final determination should be made later today, but it sounds like he’ll be leaving Chicago and should be back in Cincinnati tonight for the Reds-Dodgers tilt.  Between his return and the Reds clinching last night, I would expect mucho applause.

    Sorry to hear he won’t be with his guys at this exciting time. Get well soon, Dusty, but take care for sure.
