Who is baseball’s best manager? The survey says ...

Arizona Diamondbacks general manager Dave Stewart pinpointed his team’s biggest obstacle during Major League Baseball’s GM meetings in November. “You know the challenge with beating the Giants?’’ Stewart said. “It’s Bruce Bochy. He’s the key to that team. We would need him to be kidnapped and taken away someplace for us to have an opportunity.’‘

How Giants should properly reward Sabean, Bochy | CSN Bay Area

So what to do then for the men who have won everything? Consider this their SkyMall moment.

• BALLPARK STATUES: This is pretty de rigueur stuff these days at new ballparks, so Sabean sitting in a ballpark seat or Bochy standing at a dugout railing is a little boring for the modern conceptual artist. Thus, we suggest two massive bronze pieces.

One would be a gigantic fliptop cellphone with a crank on the side to commemorate Sabean’s Vietnam War-era mobile (the crank is there to power it, since batteries hadn’t been invented when he bought the phone). The other would merely be Bochy’s enormous conk, with Saturn-like rings made of moons of the 94 men who have managed big league teams since he took the job.
