So Hillman definitely called for this one from the dugout...right?
And the winner of Major League Baseball Manager Idol is... TREY HILLMAN! This YouTube video is from November 25, 2007 as the manager of your Royals actually SANG, and boy, did he do well! As all of you in Royals Nation know, he turned a Kansas City Royals-like team, the Hokkaido Nippon Ham Fighters into a Japanese League powerhouse. And in Trey's last game with the Fighters, he actually sang. Listen! Haven't heard Joe Torre sing... Joe Girardi, can you sing like Britney Spears? Hey, Terry Francona! Can you do a duet with Lady GaGa? How about you, Ozzie Guillen, will you audition for American Idol next year? You gotta see it to believe it. I demand a singing competition between Gardenhire, Wedge, Leyland, Guillen and Hillman to see who is the best singer in the A.L. Central. Then he'll go up against Scioscia, Girardi and Francona in the A.L. Skipper Singoff, and maybe challenge LaRussa or Torre or Piniella in the finals. Trey Hillman really is a good singer, but not like KC's own David Cook, though. Gotta love Hillman for one thing, he can really sing!
