    Which managers have managed more than one team in the postseason? Who has managed the most different teams. Jim Leyland has three; does anyone else?

    @3-Also not to many teams represented. Yankees, Indians, Braves....

  5. scott-53 Says:

    The top ten career leaders in games played equals 1095 games played as of today. I'm guessing 40% of those games were played in Yankee pinstripes.

  6. scott-53 Says:

    After a closer look. Its closer to 60% of the games played were in Yankee pinstripes.

  7. Scott-53 Says:

    @ 6---Only Chipper Jones (Braves) & Manny Ramirez (Indians, Red Sox) spent none of their playoff careers wearing Yankee pinstripes.
