Bud Black is an emotionless automaton.

At least according to some wang. Actually that Wang is a professor at Swarthmore who used manger tendencies to create charicatures of each manager. It's really quite interesting to take a boring analysis of the current mlb managers and create funny-looking faces from it.

Bud Black was really quite ordinary, almost identical to the league averages. But he is quite a contrast to Bruce Bochy (located right next to him, conveniently enough) who looks very much like a weirdo. Strangely enough, this method seems to have nailed Lou Pinella's smile just perfectly.

If you didn't follow the link above, here is the article  and here is the picture.

[Note by Dex, 04/02/08 4:38 PM EDT ] This is fascinating and here's a "thumbnail" of the photo along with Bud and Bochy highlighted:
