He proved by making it to the playoffs that the yankees needed him more than he needed the yankees. Now the yankees are sitting at home watching the playoffs

Why doesn't Stratomatic make a player card for Joe Torre in their Hall of Fame sets? I'm just putting that out there.

Also a great baseball player.

3 John McGraw

He was the best of all managers in the history of the Giants franchise, here's his 1937 Hall of Fame plaque: Star third-baseman of the great Baltimore Orioles, National League champions in the 1890s.

4 Tony La Russa
5 Casey Stengel
6 Sparky Anderson
7 Ozzie Guillen

"Does anyone understand what he's saying? "

8 Earl Weaver
9 Terry Francona

Ozzie Guillen is not the best, not near it. Francona is consistent, and won with a team that perpetually sucked.

10 Bobby Cox
The Contenders
11 Clint Hurdle
12 Connie Mack

Connie was a great owner AND a great manager. Sure he lost a lot and destroyed dynasties BUT he also build dynasties and won a lot of games. Here's his 1937 Hall of Fame Plaque: A star catcher but famed more as manager of the Philadelphia Athletics since 1901. Winner of 9 pennants and 5 world championsips. Received the Bok award in Philadelphia in 1929.

13 Lou Piniella

I mostly like him during his years with the Mariners. That's where he built up his reputation as not only a great manager, but a fiery one as well. When arguing with umpires he's been known to throw bases, pour dirt all over home plate, and kick his hat quite far.

He gave the Mariners their big 1995 season, to which I had season tickets! I was able to meet him personally, and he doesn't seem much like the hard manager he is on the field, but he's a really nice guy!
