MLB Manager Rankings: from Worst to Best

28. Rob Thomson — Philadelphia Phillies

After a two-year hiatus, Joe Girardi returned to manage the Phillies. Girardi proved himself while in New York, leading the Bronx Bombers to the 2009 World Series title and posting an overall record of 910-710 over 10 seasons. In his first two years with the Phillies, the club failed to make the postseason — and went 110-112 overall. Girardi was fired after the Phillies started the 2022 season 22-29. Enter, Rob Thomson. Thomson has served as Philadelphia’s bench coach the past five seasons and was a coach for the Yankees from 2008-2017. Let’s see what he can do as a manager.
