Managers have bad tempers. How could they not when they’re dealing with umpires every day? You never know when they’ll get tossed. You watch them with bated breath, waiting for that one missed call by the ump that will set them into a fit of fury.
There are a select few who particularly terrify me. The managers I’m talking about are the ones who could surely kick ass off the field in a fight as well as on the field.
If a fight really did break out who would you least want to go up against?
Here’s a list of the top 7 managers who could kick my ass (or anyone’s) in a fist fight
Any guy who could curse out Bonds the way Leyland did completely has my respect. Yes, I know, he’s kind of old, but I’d say that he could still beat me up.
Joe is definitely the kind of guy who knows who and when to fight. He’s got brains, and he only invests himself in fights that he knows he can win. He also seems like the kind of guy that knows how to defend himself well.
Mike Sciosia really looks like the nicest guy...until he gets mad. He’s an imposing figure, and looks like he could give almost anyone a complete beat down.
La Russa has one of the shortest tempers of any manager. He usually appears cool, calm, and collected, but bubbling underneath is a pit bull ready to attack. Once you get that fire started, make sure to get out of his way.
Ozzie is just crazy, which is why he would be great during a fight. It’s obvious that Ozzie can talk the talk, but I’d put my money down that he could walk the walk as well.
It wouldn’t be very sweet if Sweet Lou was up against you in a fight. Lou isn’t afraid to stand up for his players, and he’s not afraid to get mad and let you know about it.
This selection should be no surprise. Bobby is one of the feistiest baseball managers in history. He tops the list of most ejections with an impressive 159 lifetime. If there is a fight, I most certainly want him on my side. He knows how to get in your face, and it appears that he isn’t afraid of throwing a punch. I don’t care whether it’s an on field fight, or a bar fight. I want Bobby Cox on my side
