With the two treads going about Joe Torre, got he to thinking (always dangerous) who is the best overall manager in baseball?
My local team, the D-Backs, have Bob Melvin, who has a fan appears to lack passion and energy, but was able to herd the Diamondbacks into the playoff despite being out scored, playing 7 rookies or 2 years daily, but when one looks at his overall record its nothing to write home about.

Jim Leyland would be my choice, his ability to turn teams around and win. What he did with the Pirates (3 division crowns), the Marlins (a world series winner) and the Tigers speaks for itself. Your thoughts?

I really think there is no question about this one. I do think Mike Scioscia is a very close second.

Top managers in the game for me would be Torre, Leyland, Scioscia, LaRussa, and Cox. It's difficult to pick the best of those five - you could make strong arguments for any of them.

I'd say Jim Leyland. Tony La Russa is a pretty good manager as well, and Sciosia is good.

I did think that Girardi did a extremely good job with the Marlins 2 years ago too.

If he continues to do that well he'll certainly be one of the best. But you can't tell much from only one year managing.

Hands down, Jim Leyland. I"m going with the early consenses here. He's a great motivator, and always seems to get more out of his team than the individual parts would indicate. I'd love to have him in Cleveland.
