Leyland was certainly better than Trammell, but I disagree with the popular narrative that he transformed the franchise over night. They had a much better team in 2006 than 2005. They were not as good the next four years.

Well I am certainly not saying that HE transformed the franchise over night all alone.

But the franchise WAS transformed almost overnight, and Leyland deserves credit for having managed the pieces properly during his tenure....a lot of the things that came together outside of his control in 2006 (key player health for example) left the building in 2008 - 2010 (esp. Guillen, Zoom, Bondo, Maggs)....and Rogers and Robertson fell back....but they were still a better team in 2007 - 2010 than they had been for the previous 15 years.
