1. Joe Maddon, Tampa Bay Rays

Always unconventional in tactics and lighthearted in spirit, Tampa Bay Rays manager Joe Maddon is a favorite of owners, fans, and the media. Somehow, he takes a team with one of the lowest payrolls and competes for a playoff spot among the titans of the American League East.

In 2013, Maddon’s team bested the Yankees for a playoff spot, and the Rays have done the same damage to the Red Sox on multiple occasions. A perennial Manager of the Year candidate, Maddon won the award in 2008 and 2011 for his work as skipper of the Rays. He’s changed the way many managers do their business.
