Jerry Manuel played 96 games and hit .150 as a backup middle infielder mostly in the 70's. He also managed the Chicago White Sox for 6 years, guiding them to one divisional title, four 2nd places and one 3rd place.
Manuel was quiet and often incurred the wrath of fans and critics because of his calm demeanor. He seems to be a bit more fiery during his current stint with the New York Mets. While in New York earlier this year, my good friend Chuck Gekas played the role of Johngy. As a correspondent for Global Traveler, Chachi got into some hard-hitting journalism, giving his take on Manuel. Fortunately, our video camera was there to capture it.
