Tracy Ringolsby: Five things to look for as World Series heads east | MLB.com: News

18 years for Bochy and 21 for Leyland. Wow, does that make me feel old.

Detroit manager Jim Leyland is frequently mentioned in discussions about the best managers in the game. San Francisco manager Bruce Bochy rarely gets mentioned.

Could Bochy be the best-kept secret in baseball? He has spent his 18-year managerial career with San Diego and San Francisco, is managing in his sixth postseason and seeking his second World Series championship. He has won three NL pennants. Leyland, meanwhile, is in his seventh postseason. He has won one World Series and three NL pennants.

Leyland, the dean of active managers, is in his 21st big league season—three more than Bochy. He leads active managers with 1,676 wins. Bochy is third with 1,454. Dusty Baker, who has managed 19 years, is second among active managers with 1,581 wins.

Bochy’s career managerial winning percentage is .502. Leyland’s winning percentage is .503.
