    Shildt is mostly an unknown as far as any success ranking, but did well in his audition so the #22 ranking seems about right. He took a club going nowhere and got them into contention, with a lot of help from some guys getting hot at the right time.

    I was not a fan of every move he made – he still seems to fall into the push-button mold managers have in using pitchers in roles, rather than as how they are performing as the game unfolds.

    He will be under some pressure this year, as this team is talented if healthy, and should win 90 games or more. Anything less without good cause, such as some key players going out for an extended period, and he will be scrutinized.

    If I have learned anything over the years it is never try to have an open minded discussion with one whose mind is closed.

    A historical view.

    Some pretty cozy company that Skip is being associated with. If he’s still in the conversation at game #200, then we’re in business.

    Rogers Hornsby should be on that list as well. He took the Redbirds their first ever modern era pennant in his first full season at the helm.

    The list was the top managerial records in their first 100 games. Hornsby was only 52-48 in his first 100 games, so fell short of the others. I added the pennant results of the top game winners.

    I am curious how much rest Schildt will give the starting lineup going forward, as they have carried a heavy load so far.

    Yeah, I saw that after I posted about Hornsby on the “100 game mark records”. My bad.

    On Shildt and the player usage – he needs to give Yadi more down time, especially with a solid backup now. I would spot start Gyorko a little more against lefties and get Carp out of there.

    He is doing a real good job with the bullpen, but then that is sort of a chicken-and-egg deal. It might be that the bullpen pitchers are all real good, so no matter what you do you are successful.
