We countdown the top five quotes said by Washington Nationals manager Dusty Baker during the month of May

Last month, we began a monthly series where I would rank the top five quotes said by Washington Nationals manager Dusty Baker each month of the season. Hopefully, this will lead towards us picking at the end of the year what was the best quote for the entire season.

When you go back to April, the best Baker quote of the month  was when he compared Bryce Harper to a bass fish and who doesn’t like when the manager make those comparisons?

As we look at the May quotes, one thing to keep in mind is that Baker managed three fewer this games this past month and for good reason. He missed the Padres series due to his son graduating high school and we congratulate Darren and the Baker family on that accomplishment.

During the month of May, the Nats went 16-11 and ended the month winning seven of their last nine games. Of course, this past month had its fair share of events for the Nats whether its Harper fighting with Hunter Strickland, Harper’s new deal, or Matt Wieters hitting a walk-off against his former team.

Remember, we want to hear from you. If we missed your favorite Baker quote from this month or want to name your favorite, please share with us in the comments section. Plus, as always, we thank the beat writers who do an excellent job gathering these quotes every day.

So, without further ado, let’s start the countdown:
