In the Dugout

Casey Stengel
Position: Manager

1905-1842 Record
7x World Series Champion as a manager

In my opinion, managing is half the battle in baseball. A great manager can take a team to new heights, and analyze the game in such a way that he will always put his team in the best position to excel. Over the course of 2 decades, there was no manager more inclined to winning championships than Casey Stengel. Arguably the greatest manager in the sport's history, and undoubtedly in the top 2, Stengel is expected to lead this Astros team to gold.
