View Full Version : Which former Chicago manager has a better chance w/ their team?

Jerry Manuel vs. Jim Riggleman... two guys that had pretty big highs and pretty low bottoms w/ the Sox & Cubs respectively...

I wouldn't want either job, but I get the feeling the market in Seattle makes it a little easier to take your time righting the ship than in Flushing NY

How is not Manual??? He has the better team, the Mets are not going to be trading their players at the deadline... Riggleman has no chance! Really I doubt either of them are the managers next year anyhow!

Manuel is an interim manager on a team that has more pressure to win than Seattle does. For that reason I voted for Riggleman.

Manuel has alot more talent on his team.

Dusty and the Reds may still surprise some people.

Does Dusty B still live on the Dan Ryan. Dusty B proved he can not stand the test of time and said time has made him a corpse in a ditch. For it is written, Dusty B will die in a ditch.

I say Manuel. Much better roster gives him more of a chance.

I doubt SEA has the ability to win 70 games even if Lou Piniella went back.

Aww I was hoping to open this thread and read about the return of Terry Bevington.

Manuel by far. He has the talent with the Mets, if he could only get them to gel; whereas the Mariners need......alot.

I thought Riggelman did a good job with the Cubs.
