What makes a MLB manager good or bad at his job?
While it's true that the only mark we really have to compare one manager to another is win-loss record, other factors need to be taken into account.
First and foremost is the quality of the talent each has at his disposal. Managers with losing records should be given special consideration if they're forced to play a bunch of guys who should be toiling in Triple-A.
Second, we need to evaluate expectations. A winning record does not ensure success if a talented club that is picked by many to win its division fails to make the postseason.
Third, we should look at character. The manager is not only responsible for how the team performs on the field, but he also needs to be able to manage human beings and their 25 different personalities.
If a manager is constantly getting in disputes with his players, chances are he isn't doing a great job.
Keeping all that in mind, what follows is a lesson in futility and a list of 10 of the worst managers in Major League Baseball history.
