  • Bochy now at .500 lifetime

    Bruce Bochy has brought his career MLB managerial record up to .500 for the first time since he was managing the San Diego Padres in 2002. Through Friday, August 31, Bochy's 18 year (1995-2012) MLB lifetime record as a manager stands at 1434-1434. With 30 games left on the schedule Bochy's SF Giants are 74-58 on the year. It would take a minimum of 17 wins in the remaining 30 games to improve Bochy's record to .501.

    There is certainly a parallel of Bochy's career to Jim Leyland's and another Giants manager, Felipe Alou. All three were under .500 late in their careers before piloting winning teams that boosted their records.. Leyland reached the .500 mark at the end of last season after many years of being below the break even point. He is currently at 1658-1646 for a .502 winning percentage. Likewise Alou hovered just below .500 for a number of years, but had a late career surge to finish his career in 2006 with a 1033-1021 mark and a .503 winning percentage.
    Strong Giant teams of recent years seem to be shaping Bochy's final career numbers towards an above .500 finish also.

      Bochy could win his 6th division title this season. That's pretty good for a .500 manager.
