Yeah, except it doesn't.

Why would any FA care? Managers have such a high tuenover rate that if you sign a long-term deal with who the manager is currently in place, he is likely not going to be there by the time your contract is up. In-game, managers only set the line-up and manage the bullpen, a lot of which are obvious moves in obvious situations. A player mostly just has to respect the manager which most do unless you are like Bobby Valentine. A manager makes no impact on a free agent signing.
