Thoughts on Mike Maddux?
Posted 03 November 2011 - 05:37 AM
I have no idea what really makes a great manager, especially when it comes to winning a World Series. When you look over the last 20 year winning managers you see some impressive names (Torre, Leyland, Francona, Cox, La **cough cough** Russa). But the question for me has always been: Are these teams winning because of their managers OR are the manager winning because of their team?
I expect its a combination of the both expect in the case of the Cardinals (RAGE BUILDING) who obviously sold Theriot's soul for a WS championship. I believe Theo will find a manager that shares his and Jed's plan and will work in unison with the front office.
So to answer you question about Mike Maddux... I have no idea. In Theo I trust.
TRUST ME BITCHES

As for Mike Maddux, I've really warmed up to him too. He's at the top of my list, for sure. I'll be curious how his post interview press conference will go. These are exciting times!
Al: With every bullet, so far.
