* MLB Manager-Of-The-Year Predictions #FireFarrell

Jeff Banister, AL Manager Of The Year; Pete Mackanin, NL Manager Of The Year.


MLB lacks good stats on managers. The best we have is XWL (expected wins-loss), which compares what each team’s win-loss record should be, based on runs scored, to its actual record. A good manager exceeds XWL, a poor managers fails to meet it.

So based on reason, math, and logic, here are the MLB Manager Of The Year predictions:

AL West LA Angels 65 71 -6 Mike Scioscia Loser Face
AL Central Minnesota 55 62 -7 Paul Molitor Twins
AL East Tampa Bay 64 72 -8 Kevin Cash Catcher

Note that John Farrell, the Red Sox “manager,” is the 4th worst in all of baseball. Not only is Farrell the worst manager in my lifetime, he’s the 4th worst in 2016!

I welcome the #FireFarrell apologists to present one iota of evidence to the contrary.

Even if the Red Sox win the 2016 World Series (which they won’t, because of Farrell’s incompetent in-game management), he should still be fired.

And if the Red Sox DO win the 2016 World Series, it will be in spite of John “slightly better than Butch Hobson” Farrell, not because of him.

I’m no idiot. I’m an MIT engineer, a patent lawyer, and a season ticket holder. Check my math.

And #FireFarrell.
