    Joe Torre 75.7
    Tony LaRussa 39.6
    Joe McCarthy 37.9
    Sparky Anderson 34.0
    Casey Stengel 32.7

    For my Single Ballot HOF project (link in sig), I tried to come up with a numerical ranking system for managers which combined success with longevity. The first thing I tried was win differential (W-L), but that does Connie Mack an unjust ranking. So then I tried wins times W% and liked that better. Here is a list of career leaders (regular season only). Turns out that Bill James's Fibonacci Win Points are simply the sum of those two approaches: W*W%+W-L. I don't really see the merit in tacking on the win differential, but it does create an interesting mathematical coincidence.
