MLB Players Agree: Chicago Teams Have Worst Managers

45

ESPN Insider Link: A survey of 100 random major league players are asked 20-some questions. One of the results bothers me greatly: Who is the last manager you’d play for? 1. Ozzie Guillen: 30% 2. Lou Pinella: 29% 3. Tony LaRussa: 7% 4. Dusty Baker: 5% T5. Five managers tied with 3% T10. Seven managers tied with 2% It seems to me that if nearly 1/3 of players list your manager as the "last person" they would play for, then you really need to look into some alternative options. I've been somewhat agnostic about the whole Lou debate, but reading this has changed my mind on the matter. If 1/3 of each year's free agents are not interested in coming here simply because of our manager, then I think we need go in a new direction. Also interesting to see Dusty and TLR on the list!
