2019-04-10 21:00:00 (link to chat)Would you agree with Larry Dierker that wanagers are worth 2 games WAR either way , depending on how good they are ?
(boatman44 from Liverpool)
I think that sounds like a very reasonable average. However, like players, I think the swings in any given year could vastly outstrip that in either direction. Some teams -- those with delicate bullpen situations, those in need of clubhouse personality management, etc. -- are going to be more volatile and more dependent on manager performance. Others will hum along as 90 or 60 win teams no matter who's at the helm. Ultimately, it's probably better to think of the manager in terms of people, and keeping them happy and motivated, than in terms of wins. One often leads to the other, but you can't really reverse engineer it. (Zach Crizer)
2008-06-26 13:00:00 (link to chat)Hey Dayn, Do you have a favorite canidate for the Mariner's GM job? What are the odds the M's hire that canidate and not Steve Phillips. Please tell me they won't hire Steve Phillips.
(Nick from NYC)
I'd love to see Chris Antonetti get a shot, and Paul DePodesta certainly merits another crack at it. If Kevin Towers decides to step aside in San Diego, then he'd be a great fit. As I recall, he's an Oregon native, so he's got ties to the region. Others ... Dan Evans, Larry Dierker (pulled that out of my hat, but why not?), Kim Ng . (Dayn Perry)
