Notes: Three of these managerial statistics — all introduced in The Bill James Guide to Baseball Managers — may need some explaining. Expected wins (ew) are, of course, the number of games a team is expected to win in that season. They are calculated by adding:
1) 50 percent of the team’s wins from the previous season,
2) 25 percent of the wins from a .500 season — 20.25 wins (based on the premise that all teams have a pronounced tendency to drift toward .500),
3) 12.5 percent of the team’s wins from two seasons ago and
4) 12.5 percent of the team’s wins from three seasons ago.

How well the manager fared against expected wins is the plus/minus number. For example, Bochy was expected to win 80 games in 1998. He exceeded that number by 18 wins or +18.

Manager points (pt) recognizes six types of accomplishment in a season:
1) Posting a winning record — 1 pts
2) Winning the division — 2 pts
3) Winning the pennant — 3 pts
4) Winning the World Series — 4 pts
5) Finishing 20 games over .500 — 1 pt
6) Winning 100 games — 1 pt

In the show: Astros (1978-80), Mets (1982), Padres (1983-87).
