Just a few quick links. First off, Chris Jaffe has written an excellent book (I’ve seen parts of it) on baseball managers. Evaluating Baseball Managers: A Comprehensive History and Performance Analysis, 1876-2008 goes way back into the 1800s and brings things up to present, analyzing managers along the way. He wrote a couple of excerpts and one of them is on former Tiger manager Billy Martin.
Also at the Hardball Times, Matt Hagen lists out the Tigers top ten prospects. It’s good to see Ryan Strieby is finally getting the props he deserves.
Finally, Mets blogger Jay Flannelly is projecting out a bunch of teams post season plans and he looked at the Tigers yesterday. I don’t agree with all of his moves but it makes for an interesting dicussion.
