Tough break. He had a horrible pitching staff. He's a pretty good manager.

I remember in my younger days I could tell you all 26/28 managers (yeah, I'm old).

Now, I'd be lucky to get half the league...

I really blame the Mets for my baseball ignorance...when they suck, I just don't even want to read the sports page anymore.

NYM - Mickey Calloway
PHI - Gabe Kapler
ATL - Brian (?) Snitker ?
MIA - Don Mattingly
WAS - Davey Martinez
CHC - Joe Maddon
STL - Guy who replaced Matheny
PIT - Clint Hurdle?
CIN - Oh, guy from the 80s who re-appeared.
MIL - Fuck, I dunno… Phil Garner?
LAD - Dave Roberts
SFG - Bruce Bochy
SDP - Bud Black (I think that’s old)
ARZ - Craig Counsel? Isn’t he managing somewhere?
COL - Uh…? Kurt Manwaring (Just thinking of early 90s catchers/utility guys at this point)

NYY - Aaron Boone
BOS - Alex Cora
BAL - Buck Showalter
TOR - John Gibbons
TBR - Yikes, no fucking clue. Should know this since he’s using openers and shit.
CLE - Tito Francona
KCR - I should remember this if it’s the same guy as 2015, but I don’t.
DET - Jim Leyland retired, so no idea.
MIN - Gardenhire stepped down, so no idea.
CWS - Robin Ventura got fired, right?
LAA - Mike Scioscia because he inexplicably hasn’t been fired.
OAK - Probably should know this one.
SEA - They still got the Japanese guy?
HOU - I should remember this from last year’s World Series.
TEX - Not Jeff Bannister


Edit: Ok, I matched 15 of 29, named 18 of 30, and knew “who the guy was” without having his name (but had the team wrong, even though I'd have gotten that one for free by seeing who replaced Bannister.

I would probably be at about 8 each for the other leagues (tops. Probably like 3 for the NBA). It would be "oh, that's right, I knew that" for 2/3,

They fired Ausmus. It's actually Gardenhire now.

If you can name 40 guys who were catchers or Middle-Infielder from the late 80s/early 90s, you can get 10 managers.

I remember when I can name all the stadiums. Now they keep building new ones and those change names every 3 years. Fuck it, I gave up

I feel like a sporcle quiz could keep us sharp, but it would probably be out of date anyway
