The Best Managers You Never Heard Of

America loves the chance to root for the underdog,
the scrappy new arrival with humble roots and only a slim
chance of beating the forces of evil, or breaking into the
championship ranks: Think of the thoroughbreds Smarty Jones

and the perennial Chicago Cubs; or the original underdog,
David against Goliath. We want them to win because they try
hard, overcome the odds, and stand for the right
ideas.
