1903-1908 Griffith had a 419-370 record, a .531 winning percentage.

the helm he had a winning percentage of .539, with a 313-268 record.

Yankees as they went from the top of the baseball world in 1961 to its bottom
depths in the late '60's and early '70's. He finished with a 944-806 record, a
winning percentage of .539.
6) Joe Girardi: The Yanks have made
the playoffs in four of Girardi's five years with the team. His record is
479-331, a .591 winning percentage, with one World Series title. Girardi has
done a good job managing his pitching staff and bullpen.

a .591 winning percentage. The team won pennants under his helm in 1976 and
1977, taking the World Series title in '77.

With the game's best players in Babe Ruth and Lou Gehrig on his roster, Huggins
compiled a 1067-719 record, a .597 winning percentage, from 1918-1929. A
monument at Yankee Stadium was erected in his honor.
Torre: Torre led the Yanks to four world championships in 12 seasons, from
1996-2007. His 1173-767 record, a .605 winning percentage, demonstrates
consistency while facing adversity as manager.
2) Casey Stengel:
In 12 years from 1949-1960, Stengel won seven World Championships, plus three
more American League pennants. His 1149-696 won-loss record gives him a winning
percentage of .623.
1) Joe McCarthy: The longest tenured Yankee
manager at 16 years, McCarthy holds the record for most wins as Yankee manager,
and his 1460-867 regular season record gives him a winning percentage of .627,
which is also tops among Yankee managers who were at the helm for more than one
season. His teams won seven World Championships from
