    What's the connection between Charlie Manuel, Billy Martin and the Kansas City Royals?

    Billy managed Charlie in the very first game the Royals played as a franchise:

    But that's probably not you want us to uncover...

    Garvey, Lopes, Russell, and Cey started 833 times and the Dodgers went 498-335, for a .598 winning percentage. That’s equal to a team going 97-65 over a season. On those occasions when at least one of them missed his start, the Dodgers were 306-267-1, which is a .534 clip. That works out to a team going 87-75. So having all four of them added 10 wins to the Dodgers per year.

      You're very close. There's a little more to the answer concerning Billy and Charlie.

        Here's what I was going for. Charlie Manuel made his debut as a player and Billy Martin debuted as a manager in the same game that the Kansas City Royals made their debut.

          I did not know it was their first games as a player and a manager respectively.

          Good catch!
