You may feel it's a load, but dumping the manager to motivate the team is time tested. Even this season all you have to do is look at the Royals. Do they suddenly have better talent? No, just a new manager.
Maybe a team has to prove itself to a new guy and in doing so play a little more focused. Whatever it is, it seems to work many more times than not.
And Tram isn't doing anything spectacular as a manager. He has the division's highest payroll, I believe, and is leading them to a 4th place standing. Hmm.
