From this thread, I have learned that the following people were basically useless and had little - actually nothing - to do with the performance of their teams:

Name Wins Losses Pct. 1 Connie Mack 3,731 3,948 .486 2 John McGraw 2,763 1,948 .586 3 Tony La Russa 2,728 2,365 .536 4 Bobby Cox 2,504 2,001 .556 5 Joe Torre 2,326 1,997 .538 6 Sparky Anderson 2,194 1,834 .545 7 Bucky Harris 2,158 2,219 .493 8 Joe McCarthy 2,125 1,333 .615 9 Walter Alston 2,040 1,613 .558 10 Leo Durocher 2,008 1,709 .540 11 Casey Stengel

Someone may call this hyperbole, but go back and read the posts. It's not. How nine of them are in the HOF is just mind boggling, apparently.
