- Goat Riders of the Apocalypse - "Defensively, Baker seems to be pretty close to league average at 2nd base. He can also fill in at third, as well as the corners in the outfield. Put it all together and you come back to that s-word I used a few paragraphs ago: serviceable. Hit him 7th or 8th, maybe slightly higher against lefties, and you'll be fine. Better than wasting $18 million over two years on Orlando Hudson or some other old free agent, right?"
- Another Cubs Blog - "It is likely [Baker and Fontenot] platoon. While Baker isn't nearly as bad against righties as Fontenot is against lefties, Fontenot's advantage vs righties is huge. He's also a good fielder so you're not only gaining offense, but you're improving your defense too. Assuming Baker doesn't exceed expectations by a great amount, these two will end up platooning."
