I support Bob Boone and with the pitching that he has and oft-injured players, I think he has done a commendable job. McKeon is not in the picture but like Boone, a certain-player type of manager. Lets see:
What makes a great manager: Pitching and timely hitting
Torre: horrible manager before he took over Yankees. Great team, good pitching and he compliments it well.
Pinella: Has he ever won a WS? Won with less talent?
Baker: I think may be the best and with better pitching would win a WS. Never won a WS
Howe: Was on the chopping block last year until the pitching turned around. Great? Was horrible in Houston.
Cox: A winner now in Atlanta but look at the pitching.
Brenly: WS winner with pitching.
Joe Morgan: Please!
Heck, the Yankees would win with either Jennifer Love-Hewitt and Halle Berry on the coaching staff! Enough of this subject. Boone bashing and support will go on for another year. .
