I know there is a lot of love out there for Joe Torre, Bobby Cox, Jim Leyland, and Tony LaRussa -- all of whom are great managers. But, without question, the best manager in baseball from 1975-2000 was Sparky Anderson. Think of it this way -- since he left the Reds and Tigers respectively, you can count the number of times they have been relevant come October on one hand. I wish him and his family the best.

As a Dodger fan, I'd rather have Sparky managing with dementia than a healthy Don Mattingly.

Hang in there Sparky, a little dementia is a good thing when screaming into an ump's face over a bad call.
