|What do I do? I prove that I can learn faster than Ted Turner, and do the team a favor and resign. The guys in the dugout are there because they can command the respect of the players, and look how hard it was for guys as different as Earl Weaver and John Boles--Weaver *still* has to put up with Jim Palmer being an ignoramus. Also, as fun as all of that stuff is, I'd remind people to talk a look at either George Will's "Men at Work" or Buzz Bissinger's "Three Days in August," and remind yourself that in baseball as in real life, managing ends up involving way too many committee meetings.
