Over the past few spring trainings, we’ve dabbled in ranking the managers as they are about to enter the season. We take into consideration past performances, plus struggles, rosters, communication, tactical ability, longevity etc. It’s all subjective.
The first-timers we place at the bottom of the food chain. I’ve always said, if you’re one of 30 major league managers, you’re doing something right, so you won’t see any negativity in the comments.
