Top 10 Owners, Coaches/Managers, and GMs we’d Want to Grab a Beer With: Team Voices Survey

In each political cycle, one of the mainstream (see also: fatally flawed; dumb; malaise-d) media’s favorite straw polls is to ask prospective voters which of the major candidate’s in any particular election that they would prefer to have a “beer with.” Bah.
