Thanks, Bennett!  Fun to get going.  Even if I don't know who some of these guys even are!  :)  (Roth, Bass, Navarro...)

Thanks for the article, Deeg...the authors do appropriately praise Joe for the key item:

"How a skipper manages his playersí egos and clubhouse chemistry is likely to be much more important than the fiddling he does with a lineup or the pitcher he calls on to get critical outs. And Maddon excels in those soft skills: He is famous for maintaining a relaxed, jovial clubhouse, and it shows in the outstanding performances of his players."

He may not be a great in-game manager, but Joe's record reflects that he manages the big picture in a LONG season REALLY well!

Interesting that the positions in the batting order look like our everyday lineup, even if the names donít match...
