DateQuestionAnswer
2009-04-16 13:00:00 (link to chat)A short answer to the question about managers learning from their mistakes: Tony La Russa. Alan Benes. Adam Wainwright. Does the answer make sense?
(Bill from New Mexico)
I can't tell sometimes if Tony La Russa is brilliant or the luckiest manager alive. Or both/neither. His career and the choices he has made are strange. (Marc Normandin)
