Dusty Baker has a baseball mancrush on Kyle Hendricks

As Kyle Hendricks gears up for his NLDS Game 1 start, the team he's facing knows full well what he's capable of.

Washington Nationals manager Dusty Baker spoke Thursday, the day before Game 1, and compared Hendricks to Greg Maddux.

Baker is hardly the first person to compare Hendricks to Maddux, but the veteran manager carries a lot of clout, especially because Greg's brother - Mike Maddux - is Baker's pitching coach in D.C.
