Former Chicago Cubs manager Dusty Baker will interview later in the week for the vacant manager's job with the Philadelphia Phillies, according to the Chicago Tribune.

Baker last managed with the Washington Nationals before flaming out with them.

He has 22-years of major league managing experience (1,863 wins, 1,636 losses) with stops with the Cubs, Reds, Giants, and Nationals.

The latest vegas odds has Buck Showalter as the front-runner for the Phillies' job. Buck Showalter +250 followed by Joe Girardi +350, Dusty Wathan +450, John Farrell +600, Dusty Baker +750, Joe Espada +750, Rob Thomson +1000, Joe Maddon +1000, Charlie Manuel +1200, and Mike Scioscia +1400.

It will be interesting to see if Baker gets another shot managing in the National League. It appears that he will eventually re-surface and manage nearly all the teams.
