Barnie was working in a brokerage office when he broke into baseball in 1871 as a catcher/outfielder. While managing Baltimore's American Association team in the 1880's, he occasionally caught for his team, but his .180 BA hardly indicated "leading by example." His third-place finish in 1887 was his best season, but "Bald Billy" managed for 14 ML seasons. In 1900, while managing Hartford of the Eastern League, he died in midseason from asthmatic bronchitis.

Expected Wins. Calculated for the team based on its actual runs scored and allowed. A team that allows exactly as many runs as it scores is predicted to play .500 ball.
Actual Wins Minus Expected Wins (A measure of the extent to which a team outperformed (or underperformed) its talent. (Over time this reflects good/bad managing).
Team's final standing for the season or, in the case of multiple managers, the standings at the time the manager departed.
