Managers at the top of Major League Baseball

The 10 best performances by managers so far:

1. Don Mattingly, Dodgers - He has emerged as a good leader, one who has taken a bunch of Triple A players and made them winners. Mattingly has certainly taken advantage of the weak National League West, and perhaps the Dodgers aren’t as good as their record indicates. But their pitching has been good, and Mattingly has fostered a nice approach in the hitters, similar to what he did in New York; patience and getting deep into the count were trademarks of his Yankee teams.
