Years ago my firm gave me a copy of Patrick McKenna and Gerry Riskin’s booklet: Herding Cats. That title reminded me of what it must be like to be the manager of a top baseball team. I am sure there are technical things I do not understand, but I also believe each manager knows how to take a group of individual stars and get them to win as a team.
